I think anyone that limits their aikido to being reactive is missing the distinction between initiative and aggression.

E.g., suppose someone breaks into a house and is attacking the children living there. Does one's aikido philosophy prevents one from initiating techniques on the attacker in order to stop his aggression?

If so, I think their aikido philosophy is quite in need of revision.

YMMV,
