Re: intensity/violence

anything other than an intent, focused, attack is not helpful either for the nage or the uke. imo it's bad training.

violence as defined by janet above, though, shows a serious lack of self-control, and a lack of care for one's partner. not aikido at all as far as i am concerned.

...personally i enjoy the focused attacks. and i'll give as good as i get.
