For any Aikido practioner: As my knowledge of Aikido is very limited perhaps someone could answer this question for me.
All of the Aikido that I have seen is when someone does a long slow punch at the Aikidost, in which he is able to easily grab the wrist of the puncher and twirl him around before throwing him. How does your skill come into play when the punch is a very fast jab, as that thrown by, lets say someone who is trained in fighting like a boxer?
Just hard for me to imagine catching that punch, or do you just avoid, and use some other tactic?
Thanks for answering!
