Re: To sutemi, or not to sutemi

Also when I was in England last year I practice at a Tomiki school and the sensei told me that they (as in Tomiki Aikido) use to practice sutemi waza but in the 70's or 80's they where band in competition so they are now no longer practiced.
I did not hear the above before there are many waza practiced in Tomiki dojos that are not allowed in competition so I don't see this as the reason. I have used some do or die techniques in randori but if you want to do grappling shiai you do judo. Most sutemi waza are Judo techniques.
