"Seagal did nothing else but show exactly how Aikido can be applied to real-life attacks.

He did not make anything "harsher" than it had to be, he simply "blended" with the attacks in a manner that was necessary to make techniques work with these attacks."

Hmm...does that include actually taunting people to attack him. I admit that aikido can be harsh but what I am really talking about is the attitude and situation in which he uses the techniques.

Anyway, this topic is for another thread. Sorry to have brought it up.

I agree, Lynn, back to training.
