As for the self defense perspective, I believe that the ultimate aikido is to have an attitude, a state of mind, that makes it impossible for others even to think about attacking. To disappear as a target for aggression.
This is done by relaxing.
It's not easy.
Are you saying that it's superfluous to practice the martial techniques of Aikido? That all you need to do is relax and develop an attitude???
