Figuring out how to use Aikido techniques (which you learned by doing kata) against a resisting opponent is left up to you for some reason, but I figure the whole thing works like judo, you set up your opponent with one technique and bring them down using their resistance with another technique. Not sure if it's meant to be like that but it works for me.
*nods* I think that is common. So the question becomes - should it be left to individuals or are many clubs stuck in a training method most suitable to beginners?
