Re: True victory?

I wonder how long the big man has been training. Many men have challenged my teaching of Aikido. (That sounds so something.) ;o) But it is true. Part of teaching, for me (please notice the disclaimer...I am not telling you what you should do) is teaching people how to uke. Most people can stop technique when uke knows what nage is going to do.

The essance of the aikido I teach is not about having power over. Some people need to be reminded of that over and over. He must be having some fun if he keeps coming back.
