Do you know why does Suganuma steps back every time he completes a technique? Is that an Aikikai "thing?"
To me it looks like a "creating space for the next technique" thing. Maybe even stepping back to switch sides, though thats hard to tell in the video. The aikikai is such a large and varied organization I would think you would be hard pressed to find any movement that everyone does the exact same way.

Ichi Go, Ichi Ei!
