I know, a broad question. but,..
What would be the most helpfull attribute to train for this doctrine ?

Strength ? Aikido's phillosophy to me is that of using the Uke's anger, force, momentum, etc... as the power behind technique.

Flexibility ? Does an Aikidoka directly bennifit from high flexibility ?

Endurance ? The techniques seem to consume little effort on the part of the Nage to execute the techniques.

Currently my training regiment includes spending time on all of the above, but is there one that Aikido depends more on than the others ?

Thank you all for your patience in dealing with my ignorance. I truely appreciate your time.
