The chart is here.
Still chuckling that a man who has yet to step on the mat is lecturing Sean on politeness. But please note that Shodokan randori is not divided into randori techniques and aiki techniques.
Warning: Ignorant questions to follow
I don't know anything about Tomiki/Shodokan competition except what I saw on the site above (but it sounds cool). In the chart Peter linked to I see "Atemi Waza" techniques. However, I don't see any protective gear in the pictures I found of competition. This seems to mean one of three things:
1) I'm looking at the wrong pictures.
2) The strikes are somehow "stopped" before really landing.
3) I DEFINITELY don't want to mess with these guys
Can someone enlighten me?
