Especially check out the firm establishment of his credibility in the T'ai Chi forum thread "Cheng Man Ching". Commonly known as the "Painting Oneself into a Corner" method.

I'm glad you were able to recognize and apply to the outside world what you've learned in Aikido. I personally love Aikido because of its non-violent nature and the fact that it gives you a way to protect yourself and not hurt the attacker (if that's what you want, as in the teacher-student case). That is one of its many strengths as an art and one that you can apply in many situations. I wish I'd been in that seminar myself, OwlMAtt.

Just a note that the blog that was the source of this article has moved. You can now find it here under the name The Young Grasshopper. Thanks for the feedback, guys.

The picture link is broken. Here is the photo I used originally.

Yes, this is the way they do ich kyo omote now. You wrestle uke down. Osensei wanted you to stretch the loins and enter uke's attack. In effect, uplifting him. The new way comes from Saito, who was already so crippled by the time he was 35, that he couldn't enter the attack.
That video of osensei showing the basic techniques in the 50s might show it the way I'm talking about.

I say again, Roadtoad, for the purposes of this article, it doesn't matter what style of ikkyo we're talking about. I picked a picture that was a clear example of the stage of ikkyo that the article talks about, nothing more. You're sidetracking this article.
