Re: ?? Exaggeration in Aikido ??
I agree with your response, a trained person does stand a better chance against any stronger attacker. I don't think you weaseled your way with this question. In fact it is one of the more honest ones. It does not have all that defensive wishy-washy holistic blah, blah, blah, tone that many people, most times respond with. Oh, and prior to reading your response, I did not know Ueshiba beat a Sumo, I find that to be absolutely amassing.
