The reason we practice Aikido in cooperation is that if we didn't, the techniques would be much more dangerous, and any spiritual aspects would take a back seat to broken wrists and black eyes from killer atemi.
Remember that it is a budo, and not bujutsu. And believe me, watching my sensei go at it in randori leaves me in no doubt they could 'make aikido work'.
