P.S. the more I learn about aikido the more I feel that philosophising about 'what is best' is useless unless someone with real experience is making the comments. Over-analysing techniques (esp. the well, what if I did that) can be detrimental as we end up with something that has no application to actual situations.

I always say this;- to understand aikido is to understand the aikido training method.

Well said Ian. I agree completely.
