Re: Rank-Aikido (pun intended)

It's uke's job to make sure that appropriate resistence is given
agree, but with a caveat - it's also the instructors job to ensure the climate within the dojo is appropriate and allows for juniors to provide resistance without that impacting negatively on them.

That's why I like our (read shodokan) training method [1].
- insert long rant against the evils of competition here along with a snide remark on the famous rubber tanto and the non-budo aspect of "certain associations" - couldn't resist Yann, what can I say but I'm a traditionalist (gathers hakama and leaves)
