Re: Effective udekimenage against resistance

Forgive my lack of experience: do you imply also that when I said drop yourself on his arm and make his teeth hit the mat, I did not say, after all, that anathema that will get me banned from all the Aiki forums of the world?
hahaha well this whole thing is a contradiction.

We are told that Aikido is meant not to harm the opponent. But we are also by told by most instructors that we are to do what is necessary in a self defense situation.

Now assuming if I'm in a self defense situation and somehow get into udekimenage position, my question is, can I throw the guy or do I have to drop him/break his arm to make it work. If so, I'm much better off using a different art. (unlikely for an attacker to comply with your attack).
