Re: Poll: Is "soft" aikido martially effective?

By "soft" I understood adaptable. In randori, one cannot feel uke if one is stiff. No technique will work on a resisting uke if you try to force them. What work is softness first, then at the right time the application of kuzushi and finally technique.

The people who understand, understand prefectly.
