Re: When Should You Turn Your Face Away When Being Pinned....?
When I observe strong differences of opinion categorically stated in a techincal thread, I find it valuable to know something about the poster.
For example, I am inclined to give a good deal of credence to the view of someone who has been training in mulitple MA since the late 1970's and has advanced to yudansha in a respected Aikido style.
If my view doesn't match, its probably worth thinking about why rather than just figuring I'm right.
I know I have abandoned many ideas about Aikido that once appeared self-evident. For which I am grateful.
