Yoshinkan Aikido is what I do now. I started training martial arts in... 1978.... in a land far, far away..
Anyway, Aikido is probably one of the least understood arts in the western world.
Roman414 is correct. It works in the real world. I use it daily on people who don't have the sense to listen to polite instructions.
When properly applied it should take no strength and look like you're not really doing anything. Now, if only they'd stop screaming and ruin the whole effect!
