comment What is the liability issuewith personal defense classes?
It's not really a "conspiracy theory". The police are taught a brand of martial arts that they're not allowed to share with civilians. For the simple reason that they don't want you to figure out ways to fight back or resist arrest.

Have friend take one of the other classes, then share the training between you two.

Though, to be fair to Kung Fu, I've seen some really impressive dedication from masters and students alike.

comment Aikido in a street fight?
You're right of course. I won't deny it. But I feel it is my duty to lead the next generation in the right direction. There are only a handful of students who will ever have the time, money and will to undergo the Senshisei course, or go to train with the Shaolin monks. So for the rest of them to try Aikido or Kung Fu is a waste of time. They would be much better off trying one of the proven arts.

I would attribute the relative effectiveness of the Senshisei course more to the 33 hours of intensive training they undergo per week than the fact that they're training Aikido. Though I will concede that 33 hours of training per week for 11 months could get you to a point where Aikido (or a subset of it) is effective.

comment Aikido in a street fight?
I once saw a Kyukushin practitioner take on 10 jackasses. He took down 5 with an axe kick and just kept going at the others until he got so aggressive he pulled his katana out of his car's trunk, at which point we had to stop him. It was beautiful and scary at the same time.

comment How to defeat a much stronger and bigger opponent?
Those are some useful tips. Purists might not like it, but this is fighting and whatever helps you win is good. Or at the very least, one should take note that techniques like this exist.
