Re: Regrading grabs in Aikido...

i just don't get you guys narrow minded insistence that it must be only weapons based and is completely unapplicable to empty hand when it is clearly meant to address both... wake up and smell the coffee... when something is whizzing toward your face whether a fist or a knife you need to move, blend, control... thats one of the things i like about aikido you do the same waza whether you or the attacker are armed or not... you just make minor adjustments instead of learning a whole new curriculum of techniques for each...
