    I am not going to getting into a fist fight at any level. I will blow you to the ground with Mace or other airborne sprays... After that I will stomp your breathing tube into the ground. Then the paramedicics can come see what they can do for you... There are no fine motor skills here....

Aikido can be very frustrating for a beginner, you just have to stick with it.
    Question why is it hard as a beginner? I was check going to start in September. Just wanting some insight.

    I do cross train in other disciplines, including stand up fighting.
    The problem with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu that I've seen is that it seems designed for 1 on 1 conflicts with the intent of taking the person to the ground. With two or three on one, the last place I want to be is on the ground addressing a single attacker while someone else kicks me in the head. If I'm wrong on this and BJJ trains for multiple attackers, please let me know. I've never taken it, so I don't know that for a fact -I'm just going by what I've seen.

    True, straight BJJ is one-on-one. True, too, that most of the finishes in BJJ are on the ground. Also true is that if one is fighting one guy, his bad guy buddies can intervene. If I'm fighting multiple assailants, I'm not going to take one of them down and try to choke him. If I have to fight multiple bad guys, I'm hoping to be shooting or stabbing my way to a solution. The situation dictates the tactics. I prepare for as many situations as I can.

    This video shows how easy it is to take control of a situation.

    The art I study does some of this, and I'd recommend any style that teaches this kind of close-in work. Gravity is your friend.
