Morihiro Saito Sensei. Muna Dori
The application of Aiki in the technique demonstrated by Morihiro Saito is analysed below.
In this video Uke grabs Tori's jacket. Tori steps to the side to push Uke's arm in the same direction. As Tori steps to the side, Uke momentarily relaxes his arm/upper-body to allow him to realign his hips to resist Tori's sideways movement. The upward atemi to the face induces Uke to apply Aiki by reversing the muscle torque about his front foot joint (i.e. rotating it forwards by lifting his heel) in an attempt to move his head upwards to reduce the impact of the atemi. This action unbalances Uke as he pulls back. Aiki-Lead
