How is your dad's ukemi?

Are you willing to hit him if he doesn't move?

One of the biggest problems with trying out your aikido on non-training friends and relatives is that they aren't really trying to attack you, and you aren't willing to really throw them. There's no energy. But without energy, aikido is nearly impossible.

I heard some (male) yudansha say that aikido never works on your wife
