Could this be why so many people question aikido?

I absolutely agree with all of your comments about different rules, but I personally think it is important to at least occasionally train outside your normal rules. It can be done safely as I do it on a regular basis. If you are training for self defense or the martial aspect of any art I think it is more dangerous to remain insulated within your rule set and never venturing out.

I have no disagreement with "going outside the box (ruleset)".

All responses are equally valid - whether they are appropriate or not, and whether they work on uke and work for nage (or not) is an entirely different matter.

By all means, do go outside your normal parameters, but be aware that although your "conditioned" response may not be appropriate in certain circumstances, it does not necessarily mean it does not work or is not effective. It may not have worked in "that" situation against that particular person (at that particular point in time).

It also doesn't mean that you throw away a technique because it didn't "work". Or conversely (and mistakenly) believe that a technique is "effective" because it worked (against that person that one time).
