Episode 6 out now free:
The conversation continues about Yoshinkan Aikido and martial arts more broadly. This episode is Part 4 of a series on atemi (strikes). In it we explore the use of basic movement shumatsu dosa 1 as an atemi:
- The basic mechanics of Shumatsu Dosa 1: 1:00
- Basic movement Shumatsu Dosa as strike (atemi) to the solar plexus (suigetsu) to make Maai (distance) and control the situation: 1:30
- Basic movement Shumatsu Dosa as strike (atemi) to the leg in a kicking scenario: 4:00
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, Shintō Muso Ryū Mokuroku, 2nd Dan WTF Tae Kwon Do) 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.
