Re: ?? Exaggeration in Aikido ??

The sad truth is that the average Aikido black belt has never even been in a real fight.
that's a sad truth?
This is a good reason to keep the challenge match in present day dojos
perhaps it's just me being pedantic, but a challenge match isn't just competitive sparring, or are you advocating dojo storming here? (you've dishonored my senseis hakama, now you must pay...)
