Re: intensity/violence

Since you seem to be talking about committed attacks with real focussed intent, (as opposed to, say, using unneccesary levels of force in throwing or pinning folks beyond their ability to take ukemi, which is what I would consider "violent"), this "left coast" aikifruity wouldn't have any problem playing with you :-)
I agree that this type of attack is not consistently taught well in all dojos, and I for one know that I have problems consistently delivering them...maybe I should spin off another thread hmmm......
