That was a bit of a waffle and too late to delete.

What I am trying to say is that the weakness attributed to sword work in Aikido is often overblown in my not so experienced opinion. Within Aikido I have seen some seriously tight sword work with no attempt to moderate it for "Aikido philosophy".

What probably does make a difference is the amount of time practiced, who is doing the teaching, and who is being taught.
