Re: Poll: How physically challenging is your current aikido dojo for you?

Although there are times when it is useful to have a physical challange, I have learnt from swimming that having severe physical training all the time can limit your ability to improve technically. Usually you need to train slowly and/or gently to get the technique correct. It is pointless being able to do a poor technique whilst using lots of power.
