Re: Shomen Uchi Ikkyo (aikikai style)
Wouldn't you want to utilize your lower center of gravity to your advantage? let Uke come to you & over extend himself to your advantage? I have noticed because of my size (5'11", 220lbs) that I must alter all of my Budo to what works for me, I may not be nimble, but my size has many advantages, as does yours. One of the blackbelts in my dojo is also a big bruiser and showed me that I must embrace my body type & adapt "my aikido" to it & vise versa.
