As Mike said, people are violent not the art. We put people in positions where they are very vulnerable and can be easily hurt. Some techniques, like iriminage make it just as easy to knock someone's head off as to do a gentle throw. Maybe this is just semantics but I feel that it certainly can be violent but I am sitting on the fence on this one.
