Re: Kotegaeshi as an expression of love

To O'Sensei Budo is love, Aikido is the true Budo then Aikido is an expression of love. Where in the execution of kotegaeshi is love expressed?

What kind of love? Ever research what word OSensei was using that got translated to love? There are several. And in what context was it said? Japanese is very contextual, so you have to look at how he said it, where he said it and who he said it to. Just throwing that out there.
