AikiWeb Poll for the week of February 18, 2007:
How realistic is doing a physically effective aikido technique with only one finger?
- I don't do aikido
- Completely realistic
- Somewhat realistic
- Not very realistic
- Not at all realistic
Here are the current results
The qualifier is: co-operation or non-cooperation on the part of uke?
Co-operative practice isn't "realistic" or "effective" to use the words in the polled question.
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to work out that an uncooperative individual isn't going to freely allow any technique let alone one applied with just one finger (even with one on each hand).
