Having trained in shaolin wushu, I'd say that many aikido techniques are equally dangerous if not more so.

Many of the chinna techniques of shaolin are the same as ikkyo-gokyo, shihonage, and kotekaeshi.

Actually, the principal of not harming the attacker is the same as well.

But the training methods are different. And the costumes.
