I prefer the multiple partner approach. If you train with one partner constantly, each learns the others movements and in the spirit of harmony, there is the chance of practice becoming a dance. Also, each person is different is size weight speed and firmness of attack. Also each person performs nage's actions differently. To me, Aikido is the practice of movement and control under varied situations. It would seem to me that this is more difficult to acheive when practicing with the same partner.
