I guess it depends on where the softness comes from. If it is from blind copeing then such Aikido would not work. It doesn't matter whether it's soft or hard. So, the question should be, is "French" Aikido effective? And if it is, then how does it matter if it reminds you of ballet? I don't like waltzing but it doesn't stop me from practicing iriminage
