Assistance with research please?
Hello, Aikidoists. I am not an Aikido practitioner, so please forgive me in advance if I make errors.
I am a writer, and would be most grateful if someone could assist me with a vexing problem I've encountered with my main character.
Am I right in understanding that the proficient Aikido practitioner can render a person unconscious *without* resorting to violence (e.g. throwing, punching etc)? I have a vague recollection about acupressure points, for example (I once met an Aikido practitioner who did an amazing thing with the inside of my wrist which caused me to collapse like a house of cards).
If I am correct in my assumption, would you be so kind as to give me the name of the movement and an indication of where the hand should be to affect the movement (obviously, if it is forward-facing, my protagonist can hardly approach from behind).
Many thanks in advance for any assistance you may be able to offer me.
