Episode 5 (P3) out now FREE!
The conversation continues about Yoshinkan Aikido. This episode is Part 3 of a series on atemi (strikes). In it we explore the timing and technique behind ‘attacking the attack’:
- The importance of posture and timing when taking the initiative pre-emptively in attack with shomen uchi.
- Attacking any straight attack with good posture.
- The importance of posture and timing when attacking the attack coming around at you.
- Applying the same principle to the hook punch (as any other round strike).
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.
