There is a sport Aikido and in that there are 1 on 1 randori practices and also competition involving dissarming someone with a rubber knife.

Most of the Aikido stuff requires you to be co-operative.look at kote-gaesh ( wrist turn)....folks do a big ole flip and roll gracefully away..........but a drunk wouldn't.he mightn't even feel it, the original of this "throw" was to break a swordsman's wrist...no throw was intended. so in it's original application it was quite different from what we see now.............and most of the throws are as flawed as that.you never ever see Aikido guys in these full contact all style fights.why do ya think that is?
