Re: Question for Nishio Students
Thank you, Jaemin Yu and Jorgen for your response.
Judging from what you say, Nishio's take is not as different from what I've gleaned from other teachers. It comes down to proportional response--something we all learned from Teacher the first time we crowned someone with a dictionary for calling us a "coutie" in elementary school.
I just thought I saw a certain contradiction in his words and the way he does aikido. Thanks for comments, more are certainly welcome.
