Re: Don't waste your time practicing AIKIDO

Indeed, I believe the quote is closer to something like this (please don't make me dig it up in Aikido Shugyo, I made zero notes in that book ._.'): In a real fight, 70% is atemi / in a real fight, 70% of Aikido is atemi. Or something like that. O Sensei certainly didn't state that 70% of Aikido is Atemi.
Semantics. " a real fight, 70% of Aikido is atemi..." was what I was referring to

And that's good enough for me. don't want to over think this.

"The state that separates its scholars from its warriors will have its thinking done by cowards and its fighting by fools."
