Re: Aikido's Attacks -- Reality and Effectiveness

Thanks, Phi.

Always a quality contribution...

Jon,

The pitching machine, while predictable, still throws you the pitch you are going to hit. If you are expecting to "hit" a right cross or a double leg, why is the pitching machine throwing yokomen uchi and katate dori?

You used a great analogy, but I still feel like we haven't gone to an adequate depth in this thread.
