Aiki Insights Episode 3 (part 1) out now FREE on YouTube!
The conversation continues about Yoshinkan Aikido. This episode is Part 1 of a series on atemi (strikes). In it we explore:
- The fallacy of applying pre-emptive joint locks without atemi
- Exploring kote gaeshi with and without atemi
- Exploring ikkajo with and without atemi
4: Explanation of the role of kuzushi (off-balancing) in responding to kento gata (jab cross combo) attack
- Exploring sumi otoshi with and without atemi
- Exploring sankajo with and without atemi
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 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.
