Uchite Sutemi Waza

The soft aiki connection of Daito Ryu can be combined with techniques that are normally thought of as having more of a hard jujutsu flavor. This basic aiki entry off an uchite grab is combined with a sutemi drop. These sutemi techniques, common in many styles of jujutsu, are present in Daito Ryu as well. This particular technique was shown to Goldberg Sensei by Inoue Menkyo Kaiden. Aiki is not a waza or technique, it is a whole body approach to everything you do.
