Re: does nikyo hurt?

If you are doing the technique all the way correctly, you can cause the structural collapse of uke without much, if any, pain at the wrist. If your technique is not quite "dead solid perfect" to use a golf reference, it can still be "effective" though it's more a pain-compliance thing, with the drawbacks therefrom.

I find it interesting that the kanji character for kuzushi illustrates a mountain falling on a house.
