Re: Escape from ikkyo ??

Any future suggestions for how to carry out the perfect non-violent, soft and round but controlling, relaxed but failsafe, traditional aikido-certified and completely awsome ikkyo??
Take uke where there is no support, apply downward pressure and sit down. If you push against the ear, you leave uke on their feet and in control of their own body. They let you do ikkyo to them.

Also realise that if uke wants to escape, they will, why do you want to do waza on somebody that are retreating.
