Re: Favourite technique in Aikido?

Wow! I'm surprised that no one has even mentioned my fave!

Sumiotoshi!!!!! I love the simplicity (offline, open and redirect). Plus how easy it is to get ura or omote as the situation dictates... Finally, its good for beginners and advanced due to easy variablility of ukemi!

I also happen to be a big fan of swariwaza kokyu ho... fun experimentation to be had by all

Lastly, I love any of our musubi practices. so much so that I made a t-shirt saying so!

Have fun!

This was answered for me during a 2 yrs hiatus for surgery/rehab, during which I had waking dreams of falling/rolling and found myself "doing aikido" unbidden in visualizations and small muscle movements while reading, walking, etc.: curiously there were only 2 body movement patterns that showed up consistently, neither ones I'd have called "favorites" if asked, but clearly resonating in my system the most: one was picking up sankyo from a shoulder grab and the other was sayonage/sokumen iriminage.
It was odd, to say the least....
related to this post as this realization came to me during a surgery rehabilitation.

My favorite technique:BOWING.
