what're some of your fears when you train in aikido? One of my fears is actually breaking my arm (I broke it before when I was a child and let's just say, I don't want to ever experience it again). Just today, while practising kotagaeshi (tenkan), I almost broke my arm. As I commited a stomach punch, the nage stepped out of the line, and almost snapped my arm while he torqued his body to do a tenkan movement. After that, I started punching like a pansy...I didn't want that arm snapped!

This might not relate to aiki but it does relate to some MA fears. While training on the ground (grappling) I'm always leary of the lower belts (sorry guys, some times you try to hard) putting too much pressure on my shoulder locks. Had it happen a few times and my rotator cuff as we speak still is not in the best shape. I always tap out ahead of time with that type of person that take it a little further than they should, I spent to many sleepless nights in pain to try and be a tuff guy.
