Re: Poll: How important a goal do you feel is the "aikido" notion of defending yourself while minimizing or negating damage done to your attacker?

I think it is very important. As an Corrections Officer I know if an inmate is injured in a use of force incident even tough the inmate may be totaly at fault it will be the taxpayers that have to foot the bill at the Emergency room and it could be me that has to work the mandatory overtime so someone can guard him while he is there.
