Re: Regrading grabs in Aikido...
Nope. Ueshiba understood the context of the technique and did it as part of the curriculum he learned, but nobody else seemed to.
I don't need to show you a video of my weapons work. I can come there and show it to you personally.
Sorry, I never used the words scenario based training. That's not a term I used. You did. I never said that aikido was scenario based, you did.
You talk about principle as if you understand it and yet you don't know why the aikido punch is a silly looking tsuki. Who's not understanding principles and whose stuck on scenario based ideas? You are because you can't even put into context the principles of blade work and how it translates into emptyhands.
