Re: Aikido & Judo

I think there is a lot of truth in the quate you brought. Aikido often demands the practitioner to be perfect for the technique to work, at least against a non-copmliant attacker.

I would not claim Aikido techniques skip the technical level, since there are a lot of "technical details" such as hip movement and associated motorics in most techniques, without which the technique would be most difficult to apply.

But, Aikido does put a lot of emphasis on Kuzushi, Mai, timing etc.
