I understand that you've been fighting regulary, so it became boring?
Back to the topic -- "martial" aspect of aikido it is not exactly fighting
And ppl who reject uke resistance, or idea that technique can fail because of this resistance are not doing aikido anymore.
I do believe the subject of this one is a specific situation, experienced by one specific aikido student.
This specific situation is excellent illustration of quite common mechanism that happens in many aikido dojo.
