    As a matter of interest, are you familiar with either phrases.. Ara waza / oyo waza ? As a shodan of a half reasonable dojo, I'd expect those holding Yudansha grades to understand and be able to apply the differences in, Kihon, (Basic) Oyo (Applied) and Ara (Severe) training.

    I have never heard the word Oyo or Ara in Japanese martial arts. We prefer to use English in a English speaking country.

    I am familiar with these. After becoming Shodan, we did much Oyo waza, and occasionally ara waza . But arawaza was still nothing compared to my first judo match, where people really fought hard to win.

    As an instructor you can make a change. I only have a shodan in Aikido so I only can help myself with crosstraining.

    I am lucky that I had a good Aikido instructor, but sometimes it is not only the problem of the instruction. In our small dojo there were only 3 blackbelt students who really trained with a serious attitude. The other showed up only occasionally, where tired from work and only want to dance around a bit. Maybe you can imagine how frustrating it is to train with someone who will nearly fall asleep when punching you.
    The culture is markedly different. I have the same problem. The people in my aikido dojo tend to see aikido as a social past-time, and they practice as such. In my judo club, I have state players and what not and these people are true blue athlete. They do not know what "take it easy mean".

    So if I am feeling a bit lazy or laissez-faire, I will trudge along to my aikido club and so some light work-out. If I am a bit adventurous.... I go Randori with those athlete. Another way of putting it simply... If I want to get a light workout without feeling being run over by a truck, I do aikido. See... the brilliant GMW has the best of both world.

    .. LOL ok.. Basic / Applied / Severe training. I did give the English translations with the Nihongo.

    My point being is that many aikido dojo don't study anything other than Kihon. (basic) Whilst henka waza (variation technique) and Kaeshi waza (counter technique) exist within "Kihon Dosa" and I accept the foundation of quality training rests with basic skills, students must at some point understand how to apply techniques against resistance (applied techniques) however, even though resistance is being applied, the principle of ukemi still exists but, once oyo waza is fully understood, students can progress onto ara waza (severe application) which involves tori removing pretty much all opportunity for ukemi.

    What becomes very obvious as students progress through to ara waza, is that many aikido techniques just take too long to complete or just don't fit the dynamics of a modern "fight" In my experience, almost all ara waza is irimi based triangular movement. Although tenkan exists, the tenkan is make by tori not uke, uke almost exclusively moves in linear lines and is accompanied with solid atemi either before, during and or after application of a particular technique.

    You'd never see uchi-kaiten, soto-kaiten et al because these forms of movement/application are based upon koryu principles.

    This sounds like stuff you do because you don't spar.
