Re: Aikido as an alternative to judo kata?

Following Dr. Kano's principles of facing an opponent with 10 units of strength. If I unbalance him he has 4 units, and my 5 will overcome him. If I push or pull my 5 units against said opponent when he is in balance he feels like stone; if he's good he 'isn't there' and I go flying. good times!

If you can overpower someone in a fight - Do it! If the opponent is twice your strength what will you do? Let him try to overpower you, and you are not there - he goes flying.

Simple. (to say)
