        Depends on what style you would do. If you do the earth loving, chi throwing ...my pinky can crush you from across the room type,then you may want to get a will prepared. But if you have any availble to you that have straight hardcore training without all the fluff, go for that. I've actually used aikido in self defense a couple of time and it worked very well.

        But that doesn't mean it will work all the time. So you have to be careful in choosing, and good luck.

              Well, unless what you were looking for was that aikido is the shizzle, I can't see how you did not come up with an answer.

              I have a more nuanced opinion on aikido than you will find on Bullshido, but the consensus here is that it isn't, and in most cases I would agree.

                  It depends on how you look at things. I train in nihon goshin aikido and I have used it in self defence before and so has a close friend of mine. Again I would look around closly and try to find a school that teaches truth rather than this will always work no matter what and this is all you have to do idea. Trust me nothing will work ever time always and dont let anyone tell you it will and yes that includes bjj. You might also try looking into aikijujutsu.

                    aikido is not your best bet for self-defense. locking yourself in your house with sufficient supplies to sustain you for the rest of your natural life is probably your best bet for self-defense. and that depends on where your house is and several other factors. you might want to look into a fallout shelter.

                    but if you're looking to learn how to fight, you should train somewhere where they actually fight and you should be fine.

                      I almost spilled my coffee when I read that...

                      To answer your question,

                      Aikido, 99.9% of life I'm going to say 99.9% not effective. Do Jujitsu or Judo.

                        Do Judo, if you want excellent grappling that still has some Japanese/martial artsy traditions. Aikido is not very effective. It is most effective as an add-on to a good foundation in basic grappling. It also has to be trained correctly, which most aikido clubs don't do. And even then it's application is limited to controlling an opponent who is not actively trying to kick your ass (i.e. they are only half heartedly resisting/attacking).

                          Go to style vs style in the video section, and look up Daitoryu Akido master vs. team Barbosa Japan watch video and form your own opinion. Then report back to us ASAP! Oh yeah! welcome to bullshido.

                            O for the love of God. If he exsist. That is not Daitoryu or aikido. That guy said he was a ki master and he is full of shit. I have never ever seen aikido or aikijujutsu do anything like that horse shit. For one he is swatting at bugs when he attacks and two if he is aikido or aikijutsu then how did anyone train him like that. No No NO NO. If that was real daitoryu then i will kill myself with a cooking spoon. Aikijujutsu is the art were jujutsu and then judo came from please do not believe that was aiki in anyway, shape or form.
