Re: The point of aikido osae

My view isn't much different from Jons'
Control techniques when done properly teach you why they are so called. This may take as long as it takes before a student sees this.

The same with pins. In fact I find the english word pin perfect for when the uke feels inexplicably pinned and unable to move let alone escape then you know the truth of pin.
