Re: Your "big break" in Aikido

Tomiki aikido is off the beaten path since we also still do matwork (shimi waza and kansetsu waza), reversals and counters, etc.
If this is true, why then did Tomiki remove all Judo waza from his framework for competition and why did he add the tanto to the framework later on as an element to preserve the distance between participants, thereby minimizing the opportunities for Judo waza?
