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 have always believed in the premise that the attacker brings about his/her own downfall. Our practice, of course, is to step aside (get off the line). The rest is what the late Terry Dobson Sensei called: "Wild Physics".
