Re: Define grappling

Yes I agree with Michael. From a Aikido paradigm I think "grappling" has more to do with dealing with non-resistance, or "struggle" to gain control or dominance over the other person in what we would call an "alive" environment.

Factor that out, and I think you essentially have kata or static training and that is not Grappling in my opinion.
