Nihon Goshin Aikido Versus Brand X
Why Controlled Fight Simulations Are So Important To Your Training
As we develop our abilities, we need to do these controlled bouts more and more ~ because this is where the rubber meets the road. The roles of “nage” and “uke” become interchangeable throughout the bout and the best nage will win.
Keep in mind that the aim is to keep it playful, but also spirited. At least a part of it should be dojo managed so that students can learn by observation. While watching one bout, I leaned over to the person next to me and pointed out the person sparring with Kristine (Call him “Jim” ~ not his real name). I said, “Jim sure has gotten good at blocking Kristine’s jab with his face.” My companion chuckled , and before he could muster a reply, Kristine executed a perfect double leg takedown (Gracie JJ cross training ~ look into it!), on Jim, quickly mounted her opponent, and Jim was done. Checkmate! Fight Over!
Now we can all learn from these bouts as long as our objective is common ~ to avoid injury and fight within the rules.
A Few Suggested Rules for your Fight Simulations:
Finally, I believe this needs to be a “By Sensei Invitation Event” or reserved for senior belts in the dojo. Use your discretion when determining who may or may not be ready.
There are hundreds of them; many of which are unflattering, featuring aikidoka with no martial instincts, and few glimmers of hope. In time, I believe that our students will begin to resemble the marital aikidoka, who kick tail.
One final point: The martial art we study will not guarantee our safety What makes the art successful is our ability to use the style to accentuate our strengths and cover our weaknesses.

This Attacker Will Think Twice Before Pulling Out A Pistol Again. See our principles in action: Elbow Chop to unbalance ==>, Elbow to the Side to strike ==>, then Hellfire and Brimstone Raining Down, etc.
