Re: Poll: How important has experiencing other martial arts been for you in understanding aikido more deeply?

The only benefits I've noticed have been purely on body conditioning and awareness. Hardly any effects on understanding as such.

The reverse is far more true.

I find aikido has helped me understand some of the karate that made no sense previously. Especially the techniques that looked like they would need lots of strength to pull off.
