Re: Aikido and kicks

I just remembered something. About 2 weeks ago my dojo-cho was teaching an Aikido technique that he says was a throwback. You enter {irimi} but you atemi the uke with your entire body with your shoulder doing the leading. He said that this technique was his introduction to Aikido. He saw Aikido performed once and wanted to see if this thing was for real for he couldn't believe what he saw{he is a black belt in Shotokan}. So on his first day at an Aikido dojo he decided to attack an Aikido yudansha with a kick and this technique was performed on him. He said that he flew back so far and hard that it literally scared the crap out of him. He almost immediately walked out of the dojo to never return.
