What my sensei says

My teacher says that it's not acually the bending and twisting of the persons wrist that gets them down but the cercular movment of the whole body and the slight squat at the end thats so powerfull, so it's your whole body working with this person little wrist... plus aikido is a very pure form of martial arts and without an attack there's NO technique. And yes the "Pie to the face", opened hand not a clenched fist (that stops the flow of ki) helps too.
