Yes, I believe that to be strong is a great help to aikidokas, at least at the begining.

If we have muscles, strengh, we can make the "mistake" of use them more than the "enemy's power". If we aren't strong, we need the tecnique.

This is what happen to women, that usually don't have much strengh.

But I really prefer having some muscles, hehe
