Re: Poll: How physically dangerous are the techniques of aikido?
i think that the level of dangerous comes with the uke moreso than the nage. an unskilled nage is pretty deadly to himself, but an unskilled uke is deadly all the way around.
as i was reading the question though, i was thinking about it in terms of street applications of tecnhiques. and the level of dangerous seems to vary with technique. some can break bones, and some can take lives.
