Actually, our approach to Aiki is probably different as well. What we do is rather unlike anything I've seen in Japan or the U.S. This is one reason I don't call what we do "Aikido," but rather Aikibudo. This is reflected by my teacher as well.
That's interesting. I'm going to have to look this up.

Not only should technique not hurt, ideally, uke shouldn't be able to feel what is happening at all.
I don't necessarily disagree. I just misunderstood what you meant when you said you "don't cause pain in any technique".
