Re: Aikido is still violent......?

You have the choice to walk away, or in extreme cases defend yourself. I know a few people from my dojo who have stopped a fight just by doing tenkan. But you do have power over your skills, is that not what we have learnt to do? I agree that you arent the only participant, but you are in control of the situation.
