Re: Aikido and Safety

This is one of the things I think of when I talk about safety changing a technique.
I agree, I think this is a really basic "policy" that if a dojo does it consistently, everybody internalizes it.
Another helpful one is, on crowded mats, going from partner practice to "lines" (which I like anyhow, both as uke and as nage).
