Paul Kang

From a post on Aikiweb on Paul Kang sensei’s passing:

In a class devoted to ukemi, while working on ukemi for ikkyo omote, he almost imperceptibly indicated an opening for uke to perform a double-leg takedown yet allowed nage to complete the technique without any resistance. Someone asked him about it immediately afterward and he said: “If you can’t take ukemi while looking for openings in which reversals might occur without always taking the opening, maybe aikido isn’t the martial art for you.”
