Re: does nikyo hurt?

Shioda's nikyo hurt like hell. And he used to stand there laughing while his students writhed in agony at his feet.
He certainly may have enjoyed doing it like that (he was something of a showman the times that I saw him in Tokyo) - but that doesn't mean that was the only way he ever did it, or that his statement about Morihei Ueshiba is any less interesting.
