hi lynn, good point. after reading this thread thus far, i still wonder what is "in shape" ? a bodybuilder is in muscular shape,but how many bodybuilders do aikido? the few that i have trained with are very strong but are easy to make lose their balance, maybe this is due to them being newer to the art and from other backgrounds. but they seem very easy to sense and take off balance. ps-not knocking you muscular people out here but i wonder as i look at the highly proficient/elite athletes in aikido(from my experience and exposure), there seems to not be alot of over muscularness at those levels. am i wrong or off track?
