Hello and osu,
Why do we use so much grappling in Aikido?
I'm no expert and I'm not sure about "Aikido", but in Yoseikan Budo, which has significant elements of Aikido, we recognize events don't always happen as we plan them. Often times, the uke responds in an unexpected, unchoreographed manner, so it is best to prepare for all ranges.
