initiating the attack

We train in several basic techniques in which sh'te initiates the attack, including shomenuchi ikkajo, as well as most ushiro techniques.

The initiation of the physical attack, however, does not mean the initiation of the need.

So the question here becomes more complicated!

We practice aikido as a defensive art, which includes initiating the movement.
