Re: Strike Nikkyo

Yea good conversation. I with you Ron on your observations in general.

I am playing with some nikkyo principle based moves in grappling. All of them require that you have real good control over your uke's center and you must be real subtle about what you are doing with the setup and all. There is a real art and level of sophistication in using this technique.

I find it is good technique for understanding principle, not so good in real life as we practice it in aikido.... at least not for me yet.
