Re: Using less force on a smaller person w/o being patronizing

It's not using force when you brush the hair out of your eyes. A baby doesn't use force. That's what aikido should be like.
Yes it is. A very small force is just as much a force as a big force. F = ma. Nothing can accelerate without a force. Nowhere in the universe, whether it's the electrons orbiting around an atom or planets and galaxies or anything in between.

But a very very small force by human terms, yes, sure.
