Has anybody ever noticed that Aikidoka sometimes scratch their nose after a waza was completed.
I see a lot of shihan do this, my sensei certainly does it, I do it also. Not all the time, but a lot of times I caught myself and others doing it.
shomen-uchi -> irimi -> nage -> scratch nose -> zanshin

Seems to me that scratching somewhere else BEFORE waza is more interesting. Helps with atemi if everyone saw what you did.
