Re: Aikido and Music

I use music alot to teach randori. The fun part is when I pull the plug, or turn it off, everyone has to freeze in whatever position they are in. Uke and Tori (nage) are NOT allowed to adjust. Nage, from whatever position he is in, must do a technique---throw, choke, takedown etc from his frozen position. Harder than you think and they have to think of a technique to do. They do get stumpted alot but they are getting better at it.
