Dangerous?

Kat-
Aikido techniques can be pretty painful and harmful if the uke (person who recieves the technique) is not cooperative. This is, however, usually never a problem. Half of aikido is being able to perform the technique and the other half is being able to recieve it. Most all instructors teach you how to be able to take in a technique safely before you actually have it performed on you. I hope this clears it up some.
