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

My aikido training has nothing to do with self-defense although there is always a possibility that it may be applied if such a situation comes up.
Unless you define "self defense" as learning how to avoid or prevent altercations that I probably instigated in the first place...
