Re: Poll: How important is physical body size for effective aikido techniques?
Well, in the void that is the space between my ears I chose to vote in a mathematically perfect (albeit common-sensically challenged) way, so I'll answer the same way:
I answered 'Not at all' - If it's aikido then size doesn't matter. Real world answer is like Dr. Seizer's above.
As an aside I have noticed that size seems to matter in the water. I can't overcome bigger attackers in the water - simply overpowered.
