Re: Poll: Which quality would you rather see in your own aikido?

I personally would like to have seen Balanced as a fourth option.

You can't have one without the other, though sometimes people mistake soft for passive which results in luke warm technique. I do believe you can practice soft technique & retain martial effectiveness but I have personaly found going through the fires of strong hard training helps you develop effective soft technique. But of course this is just my experiance.
