Re: Poll: Is inducing physical pain in others necessary in getting better at aikido?

I know this is an old poll, but I got really confused on this one...

A lot of people are saying there is no pain when a Nikyo is applied, especially when done by a master? How do the two relate? I'm only 4th Kyu here, but I seem to be being taught to slap out when the pain happens, not at the threat of it happening.

Any clarifications here?
