Kicks and Aikido

The only differece between kicks and punches is on the ma-ai. more important is to stop of speaking in termes of "defense" agaist kicks or anything else because this isn't a good attitude for fighting: defense is equipareted to passive while fighting speaking is better to be active then we should start to have an attacking attitude.
Hovever the best thing is to be able to balance inn and yang (not only during a training section or a fight) so, is not correct to stress on defense neither on attack (but i think too many aikidokas practise with a defense idea in their mind: they are dead before fighting)
sincerely yours
