"If you guys know that aikido does not work in a fight and in training do not really give your partner a convincing attack and then just roll or fall down, why do you do it?"
Does the overall Aikido community feel that this is accurate of Aikido? I personally would find this statement ludicrous and silly. I would respond that I simply do not agree with or believe this statement. This statement would apply to Karate as much or possibly more than Aikido.
