Re: Aikido: Most Physically Involving?

The only time I've worked up more of a sweat than in Aikido is sparring. Standing around kicking and punching into thin air isn't really much effort. Strangely I don't really work up a sweat in Ju-jitsu though. That said our dojo is usually 25-30C because the heatings on all the time and the windows are all painted shut except for one and the only fan we have can't actually stand up by itself and Sensei despises it with a passion anyway. But then if we do open the one window we can open then the smells from the Chinese restaurant next door waft in and make everyone hungry.
