Hi Cas,

Yes, I did read what you wrote, but I just wanted to express my disagreement that yonkyo relies on pain.

My thought is that yonkyo does not necessarily involve the radial nerve but is, as is the rest of aikido, more reliant upon balance breaking. I feel that relying upon finding the pressure point is a lot less reliable than working towards a balance break.

I've been the recipient of very effective yonkyo which did not produce an ounce of pain...
