I think it is true that many aikidoka can't strike well, but the same applies to many karateka as well. I think alot of martial arts do not train with 'sincere' attacks. I wouldn't say just learning another martial art will remedy this situation. We need to make sure that attacks are fast and powerful in aikido. If they are not, they need to be remedied.

---understanding aikido is understanding the training method---
