Re: Aikido vs non-committed attacks?
Thank you, that makes a lot of sense. Further, it seems to match with much of Sun Tzu's teachings on what is profitable in war, and what is not. It also explains why so much of the training I've done so far seems to be much more psychological than physical, in that every time I uke for one of my more skilled sempai, it is as if I find myself overcommitted even when I did not intend to be.
Thanks for the great answer. It still amazes me how enlightening this entire study is. =)
