1. are there any technique in Aikido (especially Ki no Kenkyukai Aikido) to defend against choke or grab (e.g someone suddenly grab your hand/collar/hair, Bear hug , etc) ?
I attend a seminar with Toshiro Suga Shihan last week-end. We did 2 hours of shime-waza counter techniques. Uke will choke Tori and Tori will execute some technique to counter the choke like shiho-nage, Koshi-Nage etc...
