    My point exactly. Whatever Ueshiba's feelings about the universe, the basic techniques of Aikido, assuming you can actually catch them on a resisting opponent and so on, are designed to seriously **** people up at the wrist and shoulder. Stuff that puts people down without needing a trip to the operating theatre, like chokes and stable control positions, are pretty much neglected...

    LOL for assuming aikido works in the first place!

    Hmmm. If you break down the techniques I think the potential is there.

    For example: A shihonage can throw a person with realitive safety, but if you bring the arm out to a 90 degree angle it turns into a dislocation of the elbow, and, perhaps, the shoulder with very little pressure. Sankyo can be a pain control to direct someone's movement, or it can break the wrist/forearm, elbow, and seperate the shoulder. Iriminage can throw a person by controlling the head, but if that control of the head is achieved it could be used to drive the head into the ground. Let's face it, I don't care what you bounce the head off of... with enough force it scrambles marbles.

    Ahh, lets make an important clarification, aikido works, its the application by fucking hippies which cause failure.

    Aikido by it's own definition (just understand what AI - KI - DO actually means) isn't supposed to be an 'in-your-face' method however with the right attitude of the student, many of the techniques can be very useful in the right sets of circumstances

    I'd like to suggest that, if you don't want to cause injury, a gentle double leg->side control is actually a better option than ballistic joint locks.
    Which is something I spoke about in an earlier post. I've been exploring responses to judo and bjj ground actions with folks at the dojo with those experiences. The responses that I'm learning from these guys are judo and bjj responses. I am focusing on responses that give me enough control to get back up.

    You can really judge a martial art by its most simple techniques.

    the basic step and throws techniques I learned as a white belt.

    Slipping or parrying a punch , coming across and over their throat and head and throwing them down.

    Is still the easiest and most realistically effective aikido technique I learned.

    One in which you can actually (to a degree) spar with.

    Shihonage and the other stuff are specialty moves that aren't very adaptive and only work under the right circumstance.
