i know that, but without striking (stabbing or shooting) the notion of self-defense becomes rather humorous
Objects in life are closer than they appear
To each according to his need, from each according to his ability...of course, you'll probably have to beat it out of him
There is no cheating, there is only jiu-jitsu.

Just my 2 cents: of the aikido dojos I've seen, the one that had the most realistic attitude, encouraged experimentation the most, and had the most no-bullshit techniques was a Seidokan club - a style that is derived from Ki aikido. Techniques seemed to work because of good timing and economy of motion.
Yoshinkan, on the other hand, has a lot more atemi, and was a lot harder overall. On the other hand, the style insists on teaching lots of large, superfluous motions, with no flow whatsoever, at least until black belt level.
I also find that atemi don't always help. If I am in a decent position, taking a hand off my opponent to whack him can actually give him the time and space to regain his balance.
There are no wrong threats, only wrong answers. (Strategy game truism)

As I said, it depends on where you train there are good schools in almost all the organizations, I was just listing ones that tended for the the most part to have a harder edge.

Basically when it comes to hunk of **** arts like Aikido, or TKD, or Karate, or Kung Fu, there ARE some good SCHOOLS, but they're the exception, NOT the rule. Therefore you're better off finding a better art to study unless there are no other options in your area/price range.

I think sometimes wristlocks are good for controlling people, but Aikido is the gayest load of bs ever to be pulled out of some idiot's ass.
Yeah, cos Aikido is nothing but wristlocks!

Blade... have you ever actually trained aikido?
I mean for ****'s sake, I only had one lesson and the rest I learned from a fucking BOOK and I was able to use it successfully in real fights - I even dropped a guy who was about twice my size using an aikido armlock. So STFU about something you clearly know little about.
