Post Videos of Yourself or Club!

Postby aiki-jitsoo » Thu Feb 14, 2013 12:02 am | #1

I think it could be good to have a thread where we post videos of what we do, so we can share techniques, show off, compare styles or laugh at ourselves. Maybe it could be a interesting thread for new people to the forum, giving them an insight to who we are, and a chance for them to show us what they can do too?

I know Captaintau posts a lot of videos, what do you guys think?

How can you teach a punch defence for a blind person?  You lose all ability to know an attack is coming in surely?

Random thought after watching a few videos :)

First video in the first post seems to take an awfully long time to do anything, it's all swirly wirly before you finally get to the technique?  Irimi nage could be much earlier in that whole process, is the video showing some other principle(s) rather than being a practical example?

Hi nry. You've got a valid point as I could have executed an irimi nage much earlier, in fact straight after the block of the strike which would be much more practical. However, our style is Aiki-Jitsu which as i'm sure you're aware has aspects of aikido movements, as well as the Ju-Jitsu. This technique was more for show and supposed to be a bit fancy. I think it shows fluidity of aikido, and directness of straight Ju-Jitsu with the throw/takedown.

Fair enough :)  What is the purpose of the initial roundy roundy part?  It doesn't look like you've affected the balance of the uke at all?

With difficulty, and I agree with you. BUT the method that I've shown there enables the Spirit Combat forms, including defences against strikes, to be performed by blind people.

You're right, but your circles could have been used better, for example for breaking kuzushi or taking account of another attack.

If it's just so they can practise the forms then superb, otherwise I'm not convinced on practical application for a non-sighted person to block an incoming attack.  Things change once they have contact with the attacker though, you're then working on touch which may well be heightened for blind or partially sighted people.

And that's exactly what the video was all about.

There are no videos of our club on YouTube or anywhere online, though there are some Motoha Yoshin Ryu videos around (Also some of our Soke, Yasumoto Akiyoshi) from foreign clubs and of the visits Soke makes to the clubs around the world.  Think I'll try to get some organised of the UK club in the near future :)

Not an event I was at, but the Wallace Collection is well worth a look.


The gym I go to has a very limited youtube presence.
