Re: ?? Exaggeration in Aikido ??
These last post sure seem to be on target to the heart of the matter.
The main topic was not meant to question the heart of Aikido, it is just a basic general question, that questions whether some Aikido instructors exaggerate. Ultimately, to say you can take on bigger opponents etc.. etc.. kinda goes against Aikido ideals! Not to mention the fact of reality, going against bigger guys/gals, more then most likely wont be good for your health.
Why not cross-train? Ueshiba was not just an Aikido master, but an Aiki jujitsu master as well?
