Re: Poll: How realistic a goal do you feel is the "aikido" notion of defending yourself while minimizing or negating damage done to your attacker?

Seems to me that it's a whole lot easier (technique-wise, as opposed to morally or any other way) to plant someone's head into the ground than to restrain them with no lasting injury, especially when they're resisting.
