Re: Aiki vs useless waza ?

looking at this from a Daito Ryu perspective for a second, I've found Katsuyuki Kondo's video on 'What is Aiki?' Vol 1 very useful for me as an AJJ practitioner. He very clearly demonstrates the difference Aiki makes to the traditional Daito-Ryu Jujutsu techniques. I guess from a beginners point of view (as expressed in the dvd) Aiki is primarily about taking posture in order to create a more effective technique, one that is less reliant on strength.
