Why would you expect people to be proficient at a skill they haven't been trained in?
the fact that aikido describes itself as a martial art yet some aikidoka yudansha that know not how to deal with "honest" punches strikes me as oxymoronic and dangerously delusional, unless you're solely into "pajama-dancing-moving-yoga-with-compliant-nonload-bearing-throws."
