Re: New to Aikido

For another thing, aikido is not grappling and the objective in an aikido encounter is not to get to a grappling situation.
Sorry if my terminology caused some confusion there. I used the term grappling loosely there, for lack of a better term. I'm sure there is an Aikido specific term for it, perhaps to get specific it would be something along the lines of initiating an aikinagi or aikitoshi, or perhaps in general a nage?
ask someone at your dojo what the words "uke" and "nage" mean
Yeah, I did totally get that backwards. I have a basic understanding of uke and nage. Uke being the guy that is thrown and Nage being the guy performing the throw.
