Hi Mike,
I'm going to chime in here. While I'm not a highly skilled aikidoka, I have met Dan. And I'd bet that he could let me get into whatever nikkyo hold I wanted and it still wouldn't matter.

The part I'm confused on is whether he would be using great ukemi skills or great internal skills, or do they blend into one at that point?
