Re: Poll: Is inducing physical pain in others necessary in getting better at aikido?

Inducing pain to uke may be necessary to test the limits of the way we use the technique (not the technique itself because it is limitless). Nage (Tori) must soon go over this test and try to induce as less pain as possible to his uke(s). A master should never be felt.
