I've done a great deal of sparring. Mostly with Karatekas and Taekwon-doists. I'd say that Aikido isn't made for sparring. It's really hard to use it that way. It's not impossible, but it is hard.

Funny point; I once did a kote gaeshi, but my partners glove came off. I was just about to throw him when it came off, so I just stood there with the glove in my hand. Then he hit me. lol

Why, just the other day I was squaring off against this level 9 and 1/2 Yellow Bamboo practitioner...and damn if I didn't get the equivalent of US$19.99 sucked out of my wallet. Got a cool keychain out of it, though...

Seriously, I'm sure a quick search through the archives will get you some war stories.

Regards,
