Re: Poll: How important is the notion of "gaining advantage over your partner" in your aikido training?

Last night my training partner was a nine-year-old boy. Gaining Advantage was not exactly an issue as I could have picked him up and chucked him across the dojo with no technique at all! As most of my dojomates can do with me....so,I say proper application of technique is far more important than "gaining advantage",
