    Default Techniques against the larger guys

    Hi, This is mainly for the Aikidoka but can go to the other disciplines, of late i have been training with guys who are very big and very hard to move around a good example would be shihonage. Now normally would switch to a different technique but its for training any steps that you could suggest to assist.

Sometimes just an inch more movement in one direction or another is enough to do the trick.
