Re: Defending against Aikido

Sorry, I must have worded it wrong, let me rephrase my question:

I someone were attacking me, and I began to use my technique with their energy, and for some odd reason I was off a bit or too slow, could they wiggle out of the hold or throw and hurt me?

As I become more experienced, I realize what my Sensei says makes so much more sense than it used to. He told me that I would begin to see openings in others' techniques even when watching them on video or the TV. Every day I think of it more and more. Very interesting what he was saying and that at the time I didnt believe him, I was wrong!
