Re: Do we inadvertently hurt people in Aikido?

I will continue doing Aikido with this mindset in hand as I still love the martial art. I am grateful for all of you that changed my mindset as the previous one might hurt my ability to defend myself if a fight breaks out.

Last night on the train ride home from Aikido class, I read in the book "Aikido and the Dynamic Sphere" that to defend oneself without hurting the attacker is one of the highest level skills in the art - something that we may not be able to achieve right this moment, but we can aspire to in our training, whether it takes us 4 years or 40 or whatever to get there.

Re: Do we inadvertently hurt people in Aikido?

Well that is a very insightful comment Paolo. I also have read the book and I can definitely recommend it as a good read. I've also encountered the quote that you said in your comment and that has been my ultimate goal in Aikido. To be good enough in the martial art so I'm able to defend myself without causing unnecessary harm to my attackers. I know this would take a lot of effort and time but it is something I have striven over the short time I have practiced Aikido.
