In General Kaeshi waza and Henka Waza by Non-Resistance Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #14 New 10-12-2009 01:29 AM
At class last week I was working with a relatively new member.. he actually has been training with us since last year but his attendance has been sporadic at best. We were practicing tenchi-nage and he asked what happens if uke tries to resist the technique. I said instead we flow with the resistance and apply another technique and demonstrated flowing into uchi-kaiten sankyo.. He then asked how does one counter the tenchi nage and I answered that that it also involves non-resistance and again by flowing with his intended throw, I applied uchi kaiten sankyo. The cultivation of non-resistance is done through ukemi training, and I showed this to him by taking forward ukemi from his tenchi nage several times. He then tried resisting more vigorously against the technique, but each time I flowed into a counter, not resisting at all but following the force of his movement.. He then tried forcefully resisting the technique and I used the momentum he created to torque him into a particularly tight sankyo which had him wincing and clutching his arm in pain. He remarked that he had never before experienced that kind of pain from a technique. I said that the because Aikido is non-resistance, the stronger the resistance applied the more painful the technique becomes.

Thanks, Linda. It was fun but I am of the opinion that it will be most beneficial if there is an understanding of the essential elements of basic technique. I think by practicing "non-resistance" an Aikidoka can best harness the energy of the partner be it in kihon, oyo, kaeshi or henka waza..

Neat. That kind of "what if I..." and "what if you..." exercise sounds like fun (except for the ouchy sankyo bit.), and valuable from both Uke's and Nage's perspectives.
