Aikido is violent, for sure. The practice of aikido is learning to find the calm in the eye of the storm. Without violence there is no need for aikido or any other martial art. Anyone who thinks aikido is not violent may want to think about changing dojos! Without the threat of violence there is no opportunity for growth on the mat, you're then just learning dance steps.
