Re: intensity/violence

I guess that would depend on the definition of violence, which to me, is defined by the intent to hurt, kill, or injure in someway.

I would say intensity would not necessarily be the same since it just means you are training harder or faster.

I think intent is everything. Certainly if you are not being responsible and sensitive to your uke's comfort or abilities/skills, then you are being harmful, so possibly that could be defined as a form of violence.
