Possibly an endless train of possibly Aikido related thought.

Some days I am like Aikiman; I can flatten uke with a a thought. Then on other days I'm a n00b.

I hate having to learn this Aikido nonsense when I'd rather be working on aiki-do. Why learn technique when body skills are 90% of it all? Or rather why focus on it so much?

And Sensei's talking about training up for shodan. I still have zero interest in it. This year, next year, five years, ten years, never, I don't care. Better things to do.

So I just decided to totally relax, I mean spaghetti arms. I found that 4th kyus and up could take ukemi to varying degrees. The newer guys just crumpled in a heap. Literally they couldn't stay standing long enough for me to get through the technique.

The technique seems to work better if you don't try to do it. If you remove the "I will do ikkyo on this person" and just have "I will do ikkyo; they are irrelevent" there seems to be a massive increase in effect.

Irimi nage on the newer guys. I only did it once. I didn't grab him I just rested my hands on him, maybe pressing in a bit, I'm not sure but not grabbing. It was like having a ball and bouncing it off the floor as hard as possible to see how high it goes and with out using the arms, only people tend not to bounce. I was horrified; my uke was fine, was even laughing about it.

It's odd and so counter intuitive. How far does this Akido rabbit hole go?
