Re: Poll: How important a part of aikido training is having good attacking skills?

If you partner does not commit to an attack why perform the technique?

When my partner does not commit I stand there and look at them funny.

They then usually ask. "why are you not performing the technique."

Too which I answer. "Why are you not attacking?"

This works every time. :-)

I will not perform at any level less then I wish my partner to perform.

I think you can guess what I voted. Aikido needs both parts, uke and shite. And both parts need to strive for perfection.

just my 0.02
