On the other side of the coin I find the inclusive nature of Aikido training quite satisfying.

Absolutely. I believe that Judo manages the middle way on this one quite well without sacrificing martial integrity with light randori, kata, competition et al.

But a decent straight attack from yudansha shouldn't be too much to ask should it?
