Article: "Aiki Law: Pronation is safer than Supination"
Posted 4/26/2007 3:15pm [from Jun Akiyama]

This interesting article entitled "Aiki Law: Pronation is safer than Supination" looks to be in response to another page on the same site talking about an elbow injury suffered by Mariner's pitcher Felix Hernandez. The article posits that pronation is not very dangerous for a pitcher's elbow as the motion for sankyo as "you have to wind the wrist an incredible distance and even then, the stress is on the shoulder, not the elbow." Thoughts from those of you who may have both baseball and aikido experience?
