Re: Kotegaishi weakness?
By the way Darin - I like the way you express yourself and am a bit remiss that I didn't say welcome to the forums right off.
Its always a joy to debate differences of opinion with someone of experience.
Just to clarify a little more with respect to Kotegaishi since my latter comments were on pain in general.
The key to Kotegaishi is the kuzushi which precedes it. The inclusion of pain in the execution of the technique or any other does not negate it as an Aikido technique.
