Re: Poll: How important is physical body size for effective aikido techniques?

Just to add a little flair body size of the Uke or the nage?

Both matter... As a 6'3 guy there is no way I'm going to do Shihonage on some 5'0 little person.

And at the same time no 5'0 person would do Iriminage on me.

However, thats not saying the 5'0 person couldn't effectively do Sudori..

I put my right foot in, I put my left foot out, I do the Aikipokey and throw you all about
