Re: Is It Missing In Everybody's Aikido?
Okay, I understand what shear is.
Is ikkyo applying shear?
Bingo. Then torsional shear is introduced in Nikkyo and Sankyo. Nikkyo's torsional shear pulse triggers reflexive leg flexors. Kotegaeshi ditto. Sankyo triggers reflexive leg extensors. Then in yonkyo (also extensors) the projection of shear is learned with less obvious levers to set up the initial shear point.
