Re: Shihonage Ukemi
I guess what I am saying now that I think about it, is that Aikido wazas can be dangerous, and inflict great injury. And sometimes due to the concerned mood of Aikido that is forgotten or not realized. In terms of safety you really need to know what your dealing with and the potential it has to harm. It's is like what my college welding teacher said before he cut off his finger off demonstrating safety procedures of a welding cutting torch, "...respect the flame, understand how it works because if you don't, it will seriously injury you." Lesson learned is that of concentration.
