Re: Aikido against very high kicking (like in tae kwon do)

While finding a good muay thai player or some other good kicker to spar with would be the easiest answer, I would suggest finding somebody versed in competitive san shou, perhaps with a taijiquan or xingyi background (as those arts seem very similar to aikido). Chances are a good san shou guy would know how to deal with good high kicks in a way aikidoka could readily understand.
