Aikilove you said I was confused. He wanted tips on ikkyo, no attack was mentioned. I know, you should either enter or tenkan. . Im taught and teach that with ikkyo you wanna go down with it not bring anything up because uke loses his balance. I can say from experience that if ikkajo is done correctly it is impossible to resist even if you know what is happening. I feel this is the danger with talking about ki in basic tecniques. Ki will come with time, but in the beggining basic physics I feel is needed. This is what every sensei, shihan, and soke!! has told me?
