Re: Poll: Would initiating a technique as nage go against your own aikido philosophy?

Hikitsuchi sensei's tapes show this as George says and I believe Iwama ryu does this as well. I think the point of question is the intent issue. If you know your are going to be attacked, then why wait for them to hit you first. Control the situation.
