Re: Poll: How important is working with strong-gripped, "static grabs" in your aikido

One of my teacher emphasizes training with strong, static grips, and another teacher emphasizes dynamics, movement and fluidity.

I find that at my level, one approach stresses good form, responsiveness and exact direction of force (strong static grip), while the other stresses timing, foot work, and balance.
