Re: Short INFORMAL video of some of my stuff (frame based waza)

"Leverage" at the connection as you describe it is an incorrect way to do gain kuzushi in morotedori saya undo as I was taught it. So if bad aikido is compared with "good" anything else it necessarily suffers in comparison. We do it with extension (down, out, in ( tricksy that one ), sideways, up or whatever) and resultant buckling -- not leverage.

Very interesting, otherwise.
