Re: Multiple attackers, using their idea of what is happening against them

Or how about training in Aikido and doing freestyle...then one can understand what Chris and Tom are talking about. It is different than what you are talking about. Redefining Aikido to fit what you are teaching is cutting out big parts of it. Randori is part of Aikido. Being able to move with and blend with your ukes is important. Citing authority and saying something a million times won't make it different.

By the way, Tom, I could understand what you wrote perfectly. I wish I could write so elegantly in a language other than my native language.
