Using Aikido During Sparring

I'm new.

Just a little background, I have not taken any martial art before but i have been interested in aikido for a while now and i will hopefully start on the 8th at aikido of diablo valley. I spar with a friend of mine that i have known since i was a toddler and we go at it for fun he has taken karate as a kid but not long. I asked him if i could use what i learned in aikido when we spar.

I was wondering if i could seriously wound him with some flips i noticed that the person gos wit the fall so they are not hurt. If he didn't go with the move or something because i know bruises happen but i would feel absolutely horrible is i hurt him badly.

Thank you,
Jake Colburn
