Re: Why bother keeping Aikido 'pure'?

Strength is absolutely one of the factors that gives you that ability, again I never said it replaced technique. Just about every competitive judoka lifts weights for that reason.

In Judo you often need to generate movement through force with pushing and pulling, people don't charge at you. In order to effectively push and pull big people you need to be strong.
