priliminary based on self defense rather than combat.
My experience has been that bigger/stronger guys end up winning fights in most instances.

I dont want to sound negative or confrontational, but what sort of experience is that omar?, if your talking about watching competitions, then yes in the end most bigger guys/girls win. Remember though that every competition event has rules, and the stage is set for a fight from the bell being rung.
Most real fight situations, you can appease an aggressive person and walk away without anyone getting hurt apart from fragile egos, there are no bells, no rules, and weapons can be involved. How would the largest of us fair against multiple attackers? how would a strong person fend off a stronger person.

Anyway aikido is not the be all and end all of anything, its just that i've tried numerous style's and been introduced to countless instructors, most of which think their style is unbeatable. Some classes i've been to are nothing but teaching people exactly what you have suggested, that strength and size matter the most, that would lead me to believe that i cannot fight anyone bigger than me and should run as fast as possible.
If you teach people just to concentrate on size and strength, then confidence, speed, agility and stamina must count for nothing.
More importantly no matter how fast strong and big you are if you cannot touch, punch or grab me then you cannot hurt me, and then that leaves it up to me if i want to hurt you.

Ha!, your kung fu is weak old man. Buddhist palm is the shnizzle, i can sell you the secret lost teachings in pamphlet form for only $20.
The self defence bit is as easy as pie.
Choose one technique that you can apply with power and conviction. It has to be a good technique that is capable of decking someone not something like a backfist or a single finger strike or double spinning reverse jumping roundhouse.
Make it something like a right cross, an elbow smash, or a knee to the groin.
Practice this one technique and nothing else.
When you need it use it. You won't be confused or wondering what to do in the milliseconds before you get decked, because your one technique will find its target.
Watch "The Fear Pyramid" by Geoff Thompson. Learn from "The Fear Pyramid" by Geoff Thompson. It might just stopped you getting knifed when you decide that grappling is a sensible choice for a street fight.
Ask yourself some very real questions about why you want to learn a martial art and if one of them is that your neighbourhood is so violent that you need Krav Maga to survive then personally I'd pocket the training money and use it to move somewhere safer.
