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

I am another person who answered "not very". The survey was, as I read it, about the responders' motives for training. I do look for, train with, martial intent, but that is different from saying self defense is what brings me to the art or keeps me in the art. So maybe the issue is semantics.
