Re: Wrist Exercises
Something I should have known at the time, but learned the hard way when this girl at my gym went out for a smoothie with me. She was mildly curious about Aikido, so I told her we do stuff like this. I took her wrist gently and slowly performed kotegaeshi, waiting for her to just barely start to feel it and react. She yelped a loud "Ow! Why'd you do that?" I felt horrible. Then I consciously realized that there's not much pain gradient with kotegaeshi - that it's almost an off-on switch.
