Actually, I visited a school with an exellent Sensei, who simply blended and took balance. They felt this was he essence of Aiki and didn't feel the need to throw. They were able to demonstrate that skill too. It was a great learning experience. Changed the way I thought. Its always good to entertain other ways of doing things.
Deepest compassion for your illness, any diesease of the ear can certainly impair balance. My compliments for your courage to continue to train. An inspiration.
