    It's that simple.
    Why are you so English all the time? It was a joke.

    Man thanks guys.

    Ever since I joined here I've been getting good advice, first to start doing Judo which was the best thing I've ever done (I'm visibly tougher now, the Judo fitness workout is insane, and I did O Soto Gari on a resisting 140KG Aikidoka and SMACK he went) then how I can make my Aikido better. I've really benefited from these forums.

    Thanks mates.

    Good Lord, it's grown.

    Quite by chance this was on You Tube last night. Their suggestion, not mine. I quite like it.



    They look like they're trying and he issues a Strike - which caught my attention. To me it looks like the Ukes are committed to the attach and he is in control when contact is made.

    Moving away from that, the Koichi Tohei excerpt. I seem to recall he was also a high Dan Judoka. In that vein, Uesheiba (sp?) was a Daito-ryo Adept. Have I point? I dunno except that both had a foundation in a hard style before the development of Aikido.

    As Mister has his eyes open, enjoys what he's doing and also trains in Judo, why worry? He'll be fine. In the longer term, his Aikido will likely be all the better for it.

    Now I have confidence to continue training again, knowing what I do isn't useless.

    Thanks mate, you and the others of course.
