Re: Poll: Who determines the outcome of a technique in aikido?
IMHO, like most things in life, the outcome is best determined by the intent and intensity of the training and the willingness to do whatever it takes.
Or is this a Zen Koan? KWATZ!
Or, Kamisama does.
Or, actually, in class, Sensei does by telling us what to practice.
Or, none of the above.
Or, all of the above including none of the above.
