Im sorry to bother you aikidoka but i was wondering of you could give me an overview of aikido.... what are the general principals with no japanese terms used please. What kind of striking or initiation attacks do you use if any? Would your hand intersection joint locks work against say a boxer, I think most JKD practitioners would prefer not to use close range hand intersection trapping that we use as lets be honest its just dangerous and out gnna work is it??? Im confused to what aikidoka do in this sitation as, as far as i know theres a lot of this in aikido. What about kicks, do you use them, if so to what general height? How do u respond to kicks, move and counter or another lock? What is the predominant form of attacking (whether initiated or as a counter to say a jab)? What of the internal side? Thanks a lot for any replies...

Hmmm, where to start?

Aikido is an experience unlike any other martial art I've experienced. It is based on Shinto spiritual philosophy which preaches the interconnectedness of all living things. It's precepts based on non-violence and peaceful resolution of conflict. Its tenets lie in the ancient warrior code of conduct - honesty, chivalry, loyalty, virtue, courage.

Because it is based on the Universal principles, and peaceful non-violence, there are no set techniques. Forms in themselves are used to teach the principles of movement, of flow, of balance and coordination, of fullness and emptiness, of extension and contraction, entering and turning.

The key to all of it is in the harmony of internal energy between the "players". We seek the "feeling" of the "moment", rather than follow a set of pre-determined responses.

So it would difficult, if not impossible to answer your questions to specific technical responses. Any response is a valid response.

But this is how my Sensei taught me, and therefore how I train. Other aikidoka will have different, but equally valid, perspectives.
