Re: Aikido Vs. Jujitsu (brazilian)

Strange that Don Magee had to go through great lengths to explain the basic premise of sparring. Why would one have to use analytical deduction to explain the basic fundamentals of sparring. The science of sparring is not new. The reasons for sparring are not new. I think the whole issue is more about a mentality that has crept into the psyche of some. Honesty is always the best policy. If you don't want to spar, if you don't like sparring, simply say I don't want to spar or I don't like it. Others love sparring and the hope is to learn and grow from the experience.
