[QUOTE]Originally posted by csinca:
In most of my aikido training, I have been taught that a technique ends in one of two ways: either you "throw the person away" and they roll from something like a kaiten-nage, of you control them and pin them with ikkyo into a standing pin for example.
However, I am off the belief that you probably shouldn't plan to end a street situation with a pin as there may be other people involved and at some point you have to let the pin off...
This leads to me to a couple of options in no particular order: break the limb, go down and choke them into unconsciousness, or let the pin go and run away.
I'm curious about how others might train, specifically as it translates into a self-defense or "street" situation. What kind of mindset do you have at that point?
Thanks for your input
It would depend on your situation. If you were a bouncer you'd have to get him back up and escort him outside. If you were a police officer you should put the hand cuff on him. If you're in a self defense situation you could yell for help, run, try to finish them off if you thought they might get up to continue the attack. I train to hand cuff in most situations but that may not be an option for most people. Anyway, it would depend on the situation.
