I think sensei X should have pointed out first that for the correct learning of aikido technique one requires a cooperative attitude, not a competitive one. Thus before making such an extreme correction the sensei should have instructed the "bad" student to relax and cooperate with it´s partner. BTW a straight arm won´t stop a correctly performed ikkyo, so if the sensei was any good it should have been able to perform it straight up.
