Re: Saito Sensei & the no-hands throw

non, Ted. In order to execute physically any throw, some basic principles must be preserved. None of this technique do it. And if base is false, any extension will be false.
Ma-ai, Kokyu, taking up slack, etc. are all observed. However these are principles of the mind. Principles that are not physical would apply directly to a no-touch throw.

You can deny that people from O Sensei on down, from many different schools/styles, have done no-touch throws. If you don't believe it can't be done, then you can't do it.

People used to think that way about the four minute mile. But then someone said, "Why can't I run faster?"

It is not practice that makes perfect, it is correct practice that makes perfect.
