Shihonage Locking

Hi Aikidokas!

long time no see!

Today's class, Sae Sensei has taught us on 5 techniques..They are, katatedori Dai-Ikkyo, Katatedori Yonkyo, Katatedori Shihonage, Katatedori Kotagaeshi and Katatedori Kaitenage.

The technique i like most is any technique with shihonage locking.

Below are 3 techniques which having the same locking of shihonage, but each style shows it owns uniqueness and beauty...try to differentiate your self.

Happy viewing :)

Salam & hi to aikidokakis,

Why UKEMI is important for kids?

they'l learn how to fall properly to avoid from getting hurt or to lessen the injury.


during a fall while riding a bicycle or being pushed (with aggression) by a bullier in school...

learning aikido is FUN :)

Tsuki/ski Dai-Nikyo and Shihonage

Salam & hi to all,

i have been busy lately, very sorry for not be able to update the blog as often.

here are 2 from few techniques covered during 17th Jan 2011 class, conducted by Shihan Jun Yamada.

Dont Panic

Salam & all to all,

sometimes the uke would get up during ikkyo, as if he doesnt want to be locked.

for nage, in this case, dont panic as you can always change your locking form.

happy viewing :)
