Re: Poll: Which of the following attacks is the most difficult for you to handle during aikido training?
Yokomen uchi I like because it is working 'inside' like judo. so, it's old home week.
that doesn't mean i can do 'aikido' from yokomen, just that if i mess up, i can
usually attack the other shoulder, leg, or run up the middle - or my favorite,
grab the lapel and pull/push down. 'plop' - no more yokomen!
Shomen uchi though, gad! I saw a film of my last test trying to do ikyo. pathetic! It felt good, no clash, but i absorbed all the energy before turning it. Not aikido, at least how i understand it.
