Re: Poll: How important is the notion of "self defense" in your aikido training?

IMHO, the direct technical application is very important in Tenshinkai Aikido, therefore (though usually not directly stated) the concept of self-defense is always present and critically important in maintaining the martial art aspect of training.

We do not rise to the level of our expectations, but fall to the level of our training. Train well. KWATZ!
