isn't aiki making nage and uke one unit, sort of a four-legged animal, like a donkey? if one unit, where is the attack?
IMO, making an aiki connection with another is a process with steps involved - as has been said: "aiki in me before aiki in you and me" Attack the attack is a step in the process. Essentially, you go and get uke's center and make it part of yours that you control - once that connection is made and kept, two are now one and there is only one center; which is yours - neat thing is that once you have aiki in you, you can put your center anywhere you want to Make sense?
