  1. The rythm of the percussion is invading, very repetitive and not always in perfect adequation with the mouvement; that gives, for me, a boring feeling this good work doesn’t deserve. Anyway , thank you for it!

  2. Mihaly…Nice video and variations from the original Kumijo. My name is Jason and I was uchi deshi under Saito Sensei from 1976. In 1978 I was there when he started to revise the original 7 Kumijo from what was shown in Traditional Aikido Vol. 2 to the 10 Kumijo as what is know today. One point of his, for example Kumijo #1, was the mid-level thrust should be kept at your sternum/ midsection level. A mid-level thrust should be parallel to the ground and not pointed at your partners face. For the high tsuki as in uke tachi's last thrust of Kumijo #4, should point below the neck line/ at the high chest bone. Both targets are for a clean/ safe practice. If you practice clean and safe, you can up the intensity of the practice with less danger. In my decade of training in Iwama under Saito Sensei, I never experience someone getting severely injured in Bukiwaza or Taijutsu practice. Saito Sensei was very firm about these and other points for safety and passing down clean form.

    私も合気道を歩んでいる者ですが、杖の扱い方が素晴らしいと感じました。私も精進していきたいことと存じます。

  4. ad un certo punto del filmato vedremo il segretario della fiom,che, spinto dal fatto che i suoi pochi iscritti non bastano a proteggerlo, si compra dure guardie del corpo esperte in arti marziali, coi soldi nostri.scherzo.
