In a way, realistic sparring may be that missing element to complete Aikido.
Please describe "realistic" sparring.

Slow and unrealistic attacks do have a role in learning Aikido. It's just that we must learn that once we have reached a certain level of Aikido, it's time to move away from the rules that were created to protect us but at the same time restrain us from the true application of Aikido.
How does one know when "we have reached a certain level of Aikido?"
