Re: Grappling In Aikido

I think people have a hard time understanding competition. When a skilled man faces an unskilled man, it's easy and effortless for the skilled man to defeat the unskilled man. Even if the unskilled man is larger and physically more powerful. This is not competition.

However if both men have similar levels of ability, experience and physicality there will be struggle. This is the nature of conflict and competition, and no martial art system is beyond this fact.
