how many people have you met in aikido (that have only studies aikido) that can deliver a good solid punch
Many who can deliver a solid punch. Many dojo actually teaches stuff like punching, kicking etc. Aikidoka should be able to deliver a solid punch but itīs unreasonable to expect them to operate at the same level as expert level strikers (boxers etc).
