Re: For those who wonder how to use aikido against fast punching

Krystal, watching the last video suggested an idea.......it seems like it would be a good drill for an aikidoka to position himself opposite of the striker on the other side of the double-ended bag and work on getting off line as the bag came toward him. Certainly seems like it would challenge one's ma ai and movement - not to mention receiving the occasional smack when the bag connected.
