Re: Sacrifice Throws/Stemmi in Aikido

1 I've seen in in both dojo I've been training in here.


NAGE: The wonderful looks of horror on uke's face (but it seems like a last ditch chance to me.)

UKE: Makes you improve your spontaneity.

3 Uke recovers his feet before nage. Also, I'm a klutz so discount accordingly, but I always seem to pull uke's shin into my groin.

4. After breakfalls are mastered.
