I was just giving my opinion on what I considered poor technique that I observed at a few aikido classes.
No strength, speed or power (I know, they are not necessary). I don't want anyone to fool themselves that something might be effective when, in effect, it might not be in the real world.
we are all entitled to our own opinions, i don't think anyone would dispute that, It just seems as though you are making rash decisions, based on little experience, (and if I am wrong about this asumption, I apologize).
May I ask how long you have studied Aikido?
