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 to allow him to realign his hips using the muscle torque about his right ankle joint so as to move his hips to the rear to resist the push in the sidewards direction by pulling back. The upward atemi to the face induces Uke to apply Aiki by reversing the muscle torque about his ankle joint (i.e. rotating it forwards and not backwards) in an attempt to move his head upwards to reduce the impact of the atemi. This action unbalances Uke as he pulls back.
