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

Timing in aikido is a deep and subtle concept. O Sensai, so the story goes, understood inter-connectedness when he saw a flock of birds warning him of an ambush. Perhaps one should always be receptive to all cues and warnings, but overt action may be nage's sometimes.
