Re: The benifits of no-throws Aikido

I have had a couple of extended periods of time when due to an unstable knee I could neither fall nor even feel safe moving enough to finish a throw or pin - I moved slowly and, as nage, just played with entering and finding the point of balance taking. Found it very instructive way to train. BTW it also helped tremendously w/ integrating breath and movement.
