Went to class tonight and am totally nikyo-ed out! I usually dread practicing nikyo because I tend to be less effective when applying the technique with my left hand. Right hand is perfect, but left hand bad.
Learned a new technique to apply nikyo though, which is pretty cool. Instead of the first technique I learned, which is the basic same hand/opposite hand application, there is the application of nikyo at sort of a 45 degree angle towards the attacker. It sort of is more like a push, because when applied correctly, the attacker will react by stepping backwards, and all you have to do is push them down.
Well, I wish that I would have signed up for this website back when I started training in Aikido.
