Re: Using Aikido During Sparring

Hi Chris and Don,

While I agree with what you said relative to not making the aiki waza work in sparring (hence my A), the problem is those times when it does work. It is often dramatic, sudden, and possibly quite injurious on those few times...if you buddy can't take falls, or realize what's happening and choose to go with it at the right time.

Best,
Ron (at least, on some of the few times I've been there, that's what happened)
