Generally, Aikido is not considered a sport. That aside, how would a teacher makes sure that the repeated application of Kotegaeshi (for example, as it is in the grading) does not damage the very soft joints of a 6 year old?
By limiting the time that kids spend on such techniques. To be honest, my wrist tends to dislike repeated application of kote gaeshi, too
