Today i got to practice with one of the guys whose aikido I like and I've never really partnered. He was kind enough to give me a couple of pointers which I note down here in the hopes I'll remember them on the mat.

kotegaeshi: in the turning around, I need to hold and turn the hand close to the ground in order to ensure the uke is well and truly pinned down

sankyo ura: turn in and backwards...i'm not quite getting the angle right for ura somehow although my omote is more effective.

He was fun to work with in that he plays a little and experiments so that there's always a possibility of being surprised which keeps me more alert. Plus since he's got excellent control so I feel freer to attack in a more committed fashion since I know he can bring me down safely and softly.
