Most Common Randori Training Mistakes

The Wheel Throw (Kaiten Nage) by a thousand cuts. Kind of a reverse discrimination randori thing going on here.... I like it.
Meeting force with force. Never a good aikido principle.

When the Aikidoka first starts participating in randori, his/her Ashi Sabaki (footwork) and Te Sabaki (hand movement) during the execution of their Aikido techniques are usually very awkward, sloppy, clumsy, poorly timed, and for the most part unsuccessful.
When this occurs the first thing usually out of the instructor’s mouth is, “OK everyone slow down.” “WRONG!” Everyone should do more randori.
Consider “Jiju Waza” as an entry point for Randori Training. Jiju Waza is a form of free style practice that involves the use of only a specific set of attacks and/or defenses that can be done at various speeds but still employs the use of multiple attackers.
A White Belt Jiju Waza example would be limiting ukes’ attacks to the straight punch, and requiring nage to always use a Front Wrist Throw in defense.
