Re: Escape from ikkyo ??

I know it's not a problem, there are a billion things that can be done and, as you say, uke is not exactly better off.

What I'm looking for, though, is some elegant way to stop the roll reversal (didn't know that term ), preferrably without going too much into "other techniques". I suppose I'm looking for a very traditional aikido-certified and peaceful - but controlling - way to carry out ikkyo and make sure uke lands on his stomach - or face - in a very aikido-nerdy way

I have a session with Sensei about this specific topic tonight. Will report

All the best

All waza have escapes, if uke rolls it's probably because you're too pushy. A better cut and more downward feeling will open other escapes but the roll will not be a natural escape for uke
