Re: Poll: How reliant is physically effective aikido on "commited" attacks?

Sorry guys, for my bad knowledge of the English language. Maybe someone can help me.
If a technique is not 'reliable', how can it be 'effective' ?

Best regards Dirk
The question isn't "how reliable", but rather "how reliant". In other words, how much does aikido rely on committed attacks to be effective? If an aikidoka is not given a committed attack, can he still execute effective aikido?

(Edit to add, as I'm trying to study German: be reliable = verlässlich sein, zuverlässig sein; be reliant on = angewiesen sein auf, abhängig sein von. Ich hoffe, das hilft! )
