Here’s a great example of a nice and clear aikido demonstration that Andrew Sensei found by Ryuji Shirakawa Sensei of Sendai, Japan. In Andrew’s words:
Watch and learn. Look at the posture. No bending at the waist … the whole body leans with a straight line between ankle hip and head. Balance/Center is controlled from the point of contact. Nice zanshin (follow through/focus) at the end.
Ryuji Sensei will be teaching a seminar at Calgary Aikikai this September 12-14th. For more details or to register visit our aikido seminar page.
