Re: ?? Exaggeration in Aikido ??

as for the Pizza Parlor Guy, if you want to be able to handle a guy that big you need to build your strength pure and simple. I am able to throw someone with seionage who weighs around 300lbs by doing deadlifts on a routine basis. I am pretty sure I could have thrown him with a seionage variation called seiotoshi which requires much less strength, once on his back he would be pretty much helpless with a knee on belly pin.

all of this is theoretical of course but I have thrown someone that big before and they knew Judo
