IMHO, personally, I am glad Aikido was not my first art. I don't really think I would appreciate the subtleties or applications. I like giving and receiving a strong committed attack and feel that other arts gave me a better base than I have experienced from most Aikidokas. I think this is a major criticism of Aikido, its lack of ability to really train against strong committed attacks.

Until again,

Lynn
