Q: WHAT IS SELF-DEFENSE?
Self-defense is a set of awareness, assertiveness, verbal confrontation skills, safety strategies, and physical techniques that enable someone to successfully escape, resist, and survive violent attacks. A good self-defense course provides psychological awareness and verbal skills, not just physical training.

Q: DOES SELF-DEFENSE WORK?
Yes. Self-defense training can increase your options and help you prepare responses to slow down, de-escalate, or interrupt an attack. Like any tool, the more you know about it, the more informed you are to make a decision and to use it.

Q: MUST I TRAIN FOR YEARS TO LEARN TO DEFEND MYSELF?
No. A basic course can offer enough concepts and skills to help you develop self-protection strategies that you can continue to build upon. It does not require years of study to perfect. 

Q: IF I USED PHYSICAL SELF-DEFENSE COULD I GET HURT WORSE?
The question to answer first is what does "hurt worse" mean? Rape survivors speak eloquently about emotional hurts lasting long after physical hurts heal. Studies show a physical self-defense response does not increase the level of injury, and sometimes decreases the likelihood. Also, people going along with the attacker have sometimes been brutally injured anyway. The point of using self-defense is to de-escalate a situation and get away as soon as possible. Knowing some physical techniques increases the range of possible self-defense options, but the decision to choose a physical option must remain with the person in the situation.

Q: AM I TOO YOUNG OR TOO OLD? OUT OF SHAPE? WHAT IF I HAVE SOME DISABILITIES?
You don't have to be an athlete to learn how to defend yourself. A good program is designed to adapt to every age and ability and provides each student with the opportunity to learn. Each individual is unique and students should be able to discuss their own needs. Some programs have specialized classes for specific groups.

Taking a self-defense class is one of the most positive acts anyone can do for themselves! "National Coalition Against Sexual Assault by the NCASA Self-Defense AD-HOC Committee"

NEWS...NEWS...NEWS

Please be aware, since 2000 I have not certified anyone to teach Real Aikido system at any belt level outside of my academy.

I have not given permission to anyone to use my name, Real Aikido name in any form of advertising or to promote themselves or their school.

I am making this public announcement because others have been advertising inside and outside their schools claiming to teach Real Aikido system and to be brown belt or black belt instructors under me.

If there is any doubt if an instructor is really the rank they claim to be, or if  that school is authorized to have Real Aikido system, ask to see their original certificates signed by me and embossed with my corporate seal.                                                                                                  Feel free to contact me personally with any doubts or questions.

PLEASE READ THIS ...

...Although many people interpret aikido as a passive style, high-ranking aikido instructor Steven Seagal disagrees. "Aikido's fundamental goal comes from the original martial arts concept: to kill your opponent," notes Seagal, who lived in Japan for 15 years and studied at aikido's headquarters dojo (training hall) in Tokyo. "All of the mental and abstract spiritual benefits are acquired from this base. You must have the capacity to kill and be able to cut off all attachments to life in your mind to be able to give life."
Seagal also emphasizes that Real Aikido is extremely dangerous. An untrained individual does not know how to fall or go with the throws. In actual combat, the untrained would surely break their joints, back or neck...

NON-ASIANS SUCK !

Here is another example of the way how people still think today: If a Chinese cook with no Martial Arts experience at all, opens a Kung-Fu school and a Non-Asian martial arts instructor is doing the same thing across the street, you can bet that the Chinese guy has a full house        and the other not. Unfortunately it’s still not well known that many of the worlds best martial arts masters and  grandmasters live in USA, Europe, and  Australia, and OOOOHHH ! wonder, they are no Asians!!!   From...                                                            http://www.angelfire.com/ks/wmal/page36.html

Hilandar

Sveta Gora Atonska kao samostalna monaška država i bastion istinskog i nepatvorenog Pravoslavlja, vekovima širi svoje zrake po celoj Vaseljeni. Sa svojih ukupno 20 manastira, brojnih skitovima, usamljenim pešterama i kelijama monaha pustinjaka, ona i danas, kao i u drevna vremena, zaslužno i dostojno nosi svoje drugo ime «Bašta Presvete Bogorodice». I zaista, ime Majke Božije nigde se više ne proslavlja kao na Svetoj Gori, čija je Ona sama pokroviteljica i zaštitnica.

Jedan od bisera u nizu Svetogorskih manastira jeste i srpska carska lavra – manastir Hilandar, zadužbina najvećih prosvetitelja i svetitelja svekolikog roda srpskog

Svetog Save Nemanjića i oca mu Svetog Simeona Mirotočivog. Sam Hilandar izrastao je kao plod njihove nepresušne ljubavi prema Bogu našemu, Gospodu Isusu Hristu i narodu srpskom. Manastir je podignut na temeljima drevnog, u tom trenutku zapustelog, manastira Helandariona. Vizantijski car Aleksije III Anđeo, a na molbu oca i sina Nemanjića, 1198 . godine izdaje zlatopečatnu hrisovulju, kojom Svetom Savi i Simeonu dodeljuje Hilandar i Mileju, oblast oko manastira «... da Srbima bude na večni poklon». Današnja velelepna petokupolna crkva, posvećena Vavedenju Presvete Bogorodice, podigao je kralj Milutin 1293. godine, pošto je prethodno srušio prvobitno zdanje iz vremena Svetog Save.

U vekovima koji su došli nakon obnove Hilandara, hiljade Srba je hodočastilo ovu «svetinju nad svetinjama» našeg naroda, a i danas ovaj Sveti manastir ostao je «zenica oka srpskog Pravoslavlja», kako je sa pravom prozvan od mnogih istaknutih duhovnika.

Odlučivši da krene stopama svojih predaka, i Ljuba Vračarević je bio udostojen posete ovoj svetinji, a sve po ličnom pozivu i blagoslovu oca Metodija, epitropa Hilandarskog i oca Nikanora, takođe manastirskog kaluđera i neumornog revnitelja za veru Pravoslavnu. Od tog trenutka, sam Ljuba postaje predvodnik više hodočasničkih putovanja na Svetu Goru, u kome su ga pratili njegovi verni učenici i majstori. Ono što su svi oni preživeli tokom svojih boravaka u Hilandaru ne može se zaista rečima opisati, s obzirom da su suviše siromašne da verodostojno prenesu lepotu i bogatstvo duhovnog doživljaja. Takođe, ne bismo preterali ako kažemo da su kaluđeri Hilandarski, a pre svih otac Nikanor, postali isitnski duhovni savetnici i nepogrešivi rukovoditelji Ljube Vračarevića i Svetskog Centra Realnog Aikidoa.

Nadamo se da će se ovi kontakti i odlasci na Svetu Goru i manastir Hilandar, uz Božiju pomoć i ponavljati i ubuduće, a sve u cilju snaženja u Pravoslavlju. Svesni smo da je to jedini istinit i nepogrešiv način za dobijanje blagoslova Božijeg za sve što se radi i dešava Realnom Aikidou.
