Principles of Aikido explained in a short video

Don't fight it, break the balance, move the centre, use your partner's motion.... how may times have we heard (or said) this? The basic principles of Aikido. Easy to say, not always so easy to do. But well demonstrated here by Okamoto Yoko Sensei. Worth a watch!


  1. I've just typed in some brilliant and spiritually guided praise of this teacher ... and lost it. I'm as sad as having lost the words as I am that I do not have this teacher's inspired skills.

  2. Yippee, I've found them ....... perhaps they're not as good as I thought when I'd lost them . . . so what eh?

    Brilliantly sensitive, balanced, self controlled and very effective, an absolute joy to watch and the sort of display that should make you pleased to be associated ... even if in name only to the art of Aikido Superb teaching , wonderful demonstration.
