Re: The hand change on nikkyo ura is kicking my a.....
Interesting question, if you look at Yamada sensei's vid his ikkyo control is so good, what's the point of transitioning to nikkyo? If ikkyo is correct then nikkyo makes no sense as a transition. Transitions occur because the first technique is not correct and the error leads to a path of further techniques. If not practiced this way the process of going from one technique to another destroys the principle of complete control and immediate victory. However, transitioning is of enormous value for understanding the less than ideal world.
