Re: Poll: How important is physical body size for effective aikido techniques?
Not to mention that when a larger person is "attacking" a smaller person, he may do so with only a little of his strength or with safer attacks since he knows it will still be sufficient to harm the smaller person. This means he isn't as "committed" to the attack as he would be if both people were the same size and will therefore be less susceptible to the aikido counter move than a person who came in full power. Maybe. Theoretically. I don't go around testing this in bars or anything.
