This is so fun to hear so many great ideas from all over the globe. I have to say this is my first experience with starting a thread and I think this is SO COOL.
Another game we need to play more in our dojo is invisible nage and invisible uke. My favorite is invisible nage, because uke gets to attack and be thrown by an invisible force (and doesn't life feel that way sometimes). But you really learn what's happening when you portray only half the interaction.
I love the blindfold work as well. Some of my best times as nage are when I'm blindfolded. Something great comes through.
Thanks for giving me an expanded sense of the Aikido community!!
