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

I think that its awfully hard to define soft as it relates to aikido. Ikeda sensei comes to mind....his aikido seems soft but its awfully effective and I've sure hit the ground pretty fast. Don Angier is another person who comes to mind. He can feel soft as can be but still hs complete control of uke. Whose perception of soft?
