Ki Musubi No Tachi | Takemusu Aikido South Africa | Aikido South Africa

by Takwann
“All Aikido techniques begin with blending movements. Tai-jutsu, the ken and jo techniques all begin with blending movements. This type of movement represents the essence of Aikido. We can learn this important principle through practice of the ken. We both raise our swords above our heads, matching movements. We have the feeling of absorbing the ki of the universe and we attempt to cultivate a mushin or self-less state in the same way as in zazen seated meditation. As his strike comes, I move off to the right and counter-strike. When he tries to raise his sword to attack me, I thrust him from below by matching his movement. Then, I avoid his strike moving to the left and strike him. He steps backward to raise his sword and I match his movement, cutting him at the wrist.” – Morihiro Saito Sensei

5 Kumi Tachi | Takemusu Aikido South Africa | Aikido South Africa

by Takwann
The kumi-tachi (kumi: to unite, group; tachi: sword) refers to advanced partner practice with the sword, encompassing 5 basic forms plus variations. The kumi exercises and their variations are the respective beginnings and the in-depth study of the martial applications of the basic training exercises. Associated with these exercises are strict rules of engagement based upon traditional fighting methods developed over centuries of use and refinement in a feudal society, and because they have a great practical basis they therefore dictate many of the reasons behind the movements. There is a great collection of variations that stem from these kihon (basics), due to the variables of combat, and the creativity of instructors. Once these exercises are properly learnt through slow, controlled and relaxed training, the movements can be performed more quickly and strongly, with the timing and flow varied to enable the student to experience a wide variety of possibilities in attack and defence.

7 Ken Suburi | Takemusu Aikido South Africa

by Takwann
“Among the basic ken practices left by the founder are the ki-musubi-no-tachi and the 5 kumi-tachi. Since the kumi-tachi are quite complicated, we must learn the basic 7 suburi in order to avoid becoming confused and to be able to safely practice the kumi-tachi. I formulated 7 suburi practices by selecting movements from the 7 kumi-tachi. We must practice the suburi a sufficient amount in order to execute the kumi-tachi safely.” – Morihiro Saito Sensei

AIKIKEN et AIKIJO 合気剣 と 合気杖 (le ken et le jo de l'aiki)

by Takwann
Les expressions "aikiken" et "aikijo" ont été adoptées par quelques élèves du fondateur et en particulier Saito Morihiro Sensei (1928-2002). (...) Cette terminologie permet actuellement de distinguer la pratique spécifique mise au point par O-Sensei pour l'étude de l'aikido, de celle, par ailleurs fort respectable, des écoles de sabre, de lance ou de baïonnette qu'il a lui-même étudiées ou dont il s'est simplement inspiré. Si l'on trouve dans l'étude de ces écoles un intérêt personnel et des points communs évidents en termes de manipulation ou de gestuelle, on reste souvent sur sa faim en termes de riai, cette relation formelle entre le travail des armes et le taijutsu, qui apparaît clairement dans la pratique de l'aikiken et de l'aikijo.

Sword tip movement - AikiWeb Aikido Forums

by Takwann
I've become obsessed with my sword cuts as of late. One thing has been driving me nuts for well over a year. When I swing my sword, watching my cuts in a mirror, I just can't seem to get the tip of the sword to go straight. It moves, ever so slightly, side to side as it goes down. It's super minor, but I can't stop thinking about it, which is probably making it worse! What I tend to do is stare at my own eyes in the mirror and try and swing the sword to pass between my eyes in the mirror. I think I'd equate it to shooting a rifle or a bow and arrow and having the shakes. Has anyone else experienced this and been able to steady yourself?
