I have recently noticed that in beginner's classes, the only times I walk out injured (usually just bruises) is when I work with someone who has pracited another martial art (such as Karate). This frustrates me to no end!
I am curious if anyone here has done other martial arts and can answer a question for me.
I Aikido unique in the Uke/Nage relationship? It seems that people who have studied other martial arts don't get the "your partner is not a training dummy" idea. Do styles like karate not have partner practice?
