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

I voted critically important because this refers to "aikido training."

By "good attacking skills" I mean that uke can consistently knowingly repeat a given attack. In addition, uke should have the ability to vary this attack appropriately according to circumstances.

This is especially true in the standard kata-esque practice that we do most of the time, but also true at a more subtle level when learning randori or jiyuwaza.
