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

Krystal, watching the last video suggested an 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.
That's exactly how it works and exactly my point thank you for clarifying
An aikidoka needs to go lateral to take hold of an arm and then he can surely place a technique however a skilled puncher will be highly mobile on feet so he will impose on you a rhythm and a necessity to dance around together with him that for most aikidokas would be totally new
