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

This is a reply to Xu: if some crazed maniac comes rushing at you with a spear, staff, axe, and you merely step aside at the right time so that this attacker goes off into the outer limits, this is a soft response. The effectiveness can only be imagined. In gassho.
