comment Should I start going to tournaments?
This needs to be narrowed down. What are your goals? What do you hope to get out of tournaments? Why don't you want to go?

comment What are the main uses of aikido in self-defense?
@slugster When you're mounted or otherwise forced to the ground? When your attacker knows how to punch or kick? Skepticism of aikido as a practical art isn't exactly far-fetched, considering its training methods.

What I said about untrained fighters refers to your last sentence: "Do you really expect to get jumped by a trained fighter?" which is to me a ludicrous excuse for not becoming a trained fighter oneself.

Uh, this is not true: "karate was taught to footmen and aikido was taught to generals." Nor will aikido work "at any distance". Beyond that, the entire philosophical approach of assuming an untrained opponent is aesthetically unappealing.

I think your analogy would be a better fit if it described someone going to a driving school and getting taught to ride a unicycle. Because it's hard to cause a car crash if you're riding a unicycle! But you also don't learn to drive a car if you only ever ride a unicycle.
