Re: Regrading grabs in Aikido...

Edwin- when I stated "unrealistic attack" I do not intend this word equating to " cannot or will not to happen" but I merely relate it to mean "unusual attack". Unusual because out of many attacks from behind where you can simply punch or kick, why do we choose to grab both wrist from behind (ushirou ryokatouri), where there are lots of possibilities of counter attack.
