Gotcha. One could also add that the more complex the waza (and there are some doozies, aren't there) the more one must have some sort of "aiki" for them to come off even in the dojo. Could that be deliberate?
I've often wondered if most techniques are really more or less puzzles intended to stress the students ability to do them with aiki more than anything else. "Ha, try it this way!"
