Re: Poll: How well taught is "being martially effective" in your aikido training?

I think most folks think of martially effective as 'hard': hard blocks, hard throws to the ground, lots of effort and occasional bleeding and joint injuries.

Martial effectiveness can happen from a well placed touch and bending of the knees.

The best training in martial effectiveness I receive is when three or four are sent to get me in randori - and I have to try to stay calm and move correctly.
