Hi Terry,

I do this sometimes with uke who resist being put to the floor. Once I have put him on floor and pinned his shoulders momentarily, I would take a step back to allow him to get up and start the attack all over again till I am satisfied that I can put him down at will even with the resistance. Nothing to prove but maximizing the time to train without softening up the Uke

Thanks for your reply
It's not quite like that... He pinned my shoulders and said now get out of that
Of course it would have been simple to do, but I refrained from doing so.
While I could move my arms and hands it would have been easy..

He was demonstrating this to the class. We all had to do it. But I know it was wrong.
I am wondering about his real status. But I love aikido and have been doing it 30 years on and off,
This is because I am in different countries. I am settled in, Thailand now and dojos are few..
Once again, thanks for your. reply
