I am sure you are right, I have been saying that my opinion applies to Aikido in general and how it is usually trained. Of course there are excepetions, there are some Judo dojos that practice very horribly as well.
What it boils down to I think is that it is easier to get lazy in Aikido practice than Judo practice. In Judo if you get lazy you get your ass kicked in AIkido nothing really will happen.
Again...depends on where you train. Some teachers will chase you straight out the door...What people are consistantly saying to you is...AIKIDO IS NOT A MONOLITH...
