I'm very new to Aikido as well, I came from a bodybuilding/wrestling background and was this ever an eye opener for me. I've always relied on strength to overpower oponents and my first night they taught me how wrong that was. I fell for the infamous "Hold onto my wrist as tight as you can" seconds later I was on the ground thinking "How the hell did this happen". I've adapted my workouts to accomidate Aikido now, I focus more on flexabillity and endurance. It really seems to help out when I'm thrown and "trying" to preform Ukemi
