As another interesting exercise, I wouldn't mind hearing the actual physics experts opinions what they feel the dominant or central force of physics is at work in each of the various waza.

Example: Irimi Nage's power relies on such and such. Shiho Nage, maybe leverage?

Also, how close does anyone feel science is to explaining Ki/Chi/Kokyu power, etc?
One of the best books for discussing the forces involved in a lot of throws is "Total Aikido" by Gozo Shioda, translated by David Rubens. If I could only have 3 Aikido books, it would be maybe my first choice.
