Re: Article: True Self Defense by George S. Ledyard


I think youīre quite right in your point, Charles.
Of course one can put too much power into a technique unconsciosly,
but quite often itīs because people have the idea of doing something with uke.
Thatīs where the self interferes with ideal Aikido:
"I do something to my partner"
instead of
"A concerted and conjoint movement emerges mutually".
