Is there stuff that operates with uke above, and tori lying on their back?
Depends entirely on your dojo. Our sensei has a background in judo so he's taken that experience and mixed aikido in with it, so in our dojo yes there is.


"A pacifist is not really a pacifist if he is unable to make a choice between violence and non-violence. A true pacifist is able to kill or maim in the blink of an eye, but at the moment of impending destruction of the enemy he chooses non-violence."
