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

For me, these days, I don't grab very hard as uke since I find doing so creates tension in my arms. Where there's tension, there's little active awareness and, hence, no aliveness. Without aliveness, I find it difficult to feel what's going on since the feedback that I'm trying to receive from my partner gets drowned out by my own tension.
