Re: What comes after Aikido?

I would then (from the hypothetical encouner you described. i.e. a failed ikkyo) transition into whatever came easiest in that particular situation. But i find ikkyo to transition into Sankyo quite nicely if the transition is needed. So, i say that i would then transition into a sankyo; or possibly a kokyu nage, or move, lead, and apply kote-gaeishi. The options are endless. That is Aikido.
