Re: Kotegaishi weakness?

Yeah, even pre-aikido I would have had no problem understanding the concept of "slack" -- as would anybody who has ever played tug or war or tried to haul something!
Also want to say my experience is similar to Mary Kaye: kind of getting heavy/relaxed on uke's wrist or on top of uke's forearm (the exact place of the hand grip less than critical), connecting it to my center, dropping and turning my center is much of my focus with this technique.
