Re: Yokomenuchi

Yokomenuchi strike with bokken or empty hand should be no different. Remember, the bokken is just an extension of your hand, body, self. The movement is the same so yes, you will step slightly off the center line.

Remmember as nage, any strike that uke can give whether it is linear as in tsuki or angled as in yokomenuchi is a gift and as a aikidoka, it is a gift you are happy to recieve and deal with.
