It is you who do all the working with fortunate or unfortunate results to you.
Ummm, that was a bit literal and misinterpreted---but still amusing

I'm hoping you do understand the point of the post though: A technique is an attack.

[Hope that doesn't bother the "There is no attack in Aikido" folks ]

If there is a technique that cannot be reversed using Aikido technique (or principles), then there is an attack for which there is no Aikido-based defense.

If Stefan perfects a technique so that it cannot be reversed, we have to go back to the drawing board
