Thanks for supporting my bad pun. Anyways, I just finished a 7 day training for tactical police like things for work. You know, cuffing, batons and pepper spray. There were alot of aikido type moves when it came to putting people on the ground and immobilising them. That got me thinking, would taking a class of aikido be a good idea? I was looking at what my university offers at the gym and tyhere it was. Street wise it looks like the ideal martial art to neutralise dangerous people who want to fight when you aren't really into it. Anyways, is it a good idea? They also offer savate wich looks good for conditionning. My first choice was Judo but unfortunately there isn,t any at school. Any insight would be highly appreciated.
