Re: On viewing technique

If you watch the old Friendship Demos from Stanley Pranin, time after time the SHIHAN emphasize that the engagement is over at first touch.

How has NAGE taken UKE's balance before UKE can offbalance him/her?

This can be very difficult to see, especially when it's not happening (most aikido.)
