What is Aiki Insights?
It’s a conversation about Yoshinkan Aikido specifically and martial arts more broadly. In these videos we aim to explore all things Aiki in a budo sense and delve into the concepts and principles that make this style of aikido such an effective martial art for self defence and self development.
The presenters are Ryan Slavin (5 Dan Yoshinkan Aikido and Shintō Muso Ryū Jojutsu Mokuroku) and Lawrence Monforte (4 Dan Yoshinkan Aikido). Between the presenters they possess over three decades of martial arts experience. Both presenters are students of Mori Michiharu Shihan – the last uchideshi of Master Gozo Shioda (Kancho Sensei), the founder of Yoshinkan and direct student of O’Sensei.
