Re: Poll: How realistic a goal do you feel is the "aikido" notion of defending yourse

Great Poll. It has given a lot of room for discussion. Aikido is the way of harmonizing energy. Most people think they are on the moral high ground in a fight. The best way is to flow with what ever happens, and let nature take its course. (as it will rather you want it to or not). Trying to not damage an attacker during a confrontation is not a realistic goal unless you have trained for it, and you have kept a level head in the midst of the situation.
