Hi Lynn;

I have to disagree with the statement. The worse case I saw was a serious crash and burn on a ski slope where the "coach" should have pulled the person back. It was obvious to many that the victim was being pushed well beyond what they could safely do.

There is stepping close to the edge and there is so far over you can't do anything but fall down.

I must say I have seen few Aikido practices where this is the case.

IMHO, if its truly "their limit", then I can't push them past it. I will certainly provide them with the opportunity to push themselves past it.

Until again,
