My sensei says that when he visited Japan and trained at the Aikikai Hombu he left bloody chunks of his feet on the tatami from the suwari-waza. I seem to remember him telling me they were pretty hard and unforgiving too.


"A pacifist is not really a pacifist if he is unable to make a choice between violence and non-violence. A true pacifist is able to kill or maim in the blink of an eye, but at the moment of impending destruction of the enemy he chooses non-violence."
