Re: So I kotegaishi'd my girlfriend...

Comments, yeah, don't try and apply aikido techniques to friends unless you are specifically practicing with them. Of course you're gonna hurt your girlfriend if you do this (unless she trains aikido too) because a) she doesn't know how to react against what you're doing, and b) you don't have enough control over your technique to know when you're putting too much into it......

A difficult problem is easily solved by asking yourself the question, "Just how would the Lone Ranger handle this?"
