Re: Kuzushi on contact

The main point in the Francis Takahashi article above Dan's comment is that kuzushi in Aikido is mostly fake.

We must also, I believe, 'resist' and 'force' tori to find solutions to the problems uke provides. Until you/we acknowledge that, start trying it, and begin to start facing up to your/our mistaken approach, then you/we will not progress. If you cannot test what you know you will never develop it. It's just that simple.
If people wanted this the training methodology would have changed long time ago, don't you think?
