Aikido and a street fightPeople often ask can Aikido be used in a street fight?

Any budo can be used in a street fight. However the effectiveness of your actions is defined not only by the martial system, but more likely by the interaction of the following three factors.

There are:

  1. Your moral and volitional qualities – are you ready to come into conflict and win.
  2. Technique of trainings – whether the instructor takes into account the possibility of real use of those skills which you get while training. At that if in the dojo the attack begins quickly and precisely you experience exactly the same stress, as in a real conflict in the street. Over time, the distinction between the dojo and the street disappears, and in the street you can act as calmly as at the training.
  3. Priorities put by the instructor at aikido trainings.
