Genuinely interested in feedback on the following:
I have yet to see, no touch throwing, or similar, done on people outside of a clubs own students, or even outside of a style.
So is no touch throwing real? Or is it just a bunch of respectful muppets standing in a circle, not wishing to embarrass Sensei.
Your thoughts? Experiences?
In my 55yrs of Aikido I too have never seen these comic capers done on anyone other than a student and teacher ` working together `..I have never been subject to this - having studied with Kenshiro Abbe - Masahilo Nakazono - M Noro - T Abe - H Tada - K Chiba - N Tamura - H Ichamura.....
If this could be done on people other than ones own students then I could see TV and Stage appearances beckoning ...
I am sorry to say that I can't do ``it``
