What do you think of Tony Bauer's idea about startle/flinch response.
How it can apply to Aikido?
It already is. Funetori, udefuri, furitama, asagao, etc.-- they are just slowed down in order to examine them is all. With good training "techniques" are what flow from those very basic things in various configurations as things just play out .

Good stuff though.

Cordially,
