INFORMATION + SCHEDULE
SATURDAY 10 APRIL 2021
From kihon to ki no nagare. With both weapons and empty handed we will study the changes in both quality of bodywork as well as the technical changes in footwork.
Kokyu. Whole body power. Essentially when we transfer power to another either with our body or through a weapon various key points come into play such as timing, distance and angle (maai). alignment, grounding, extension from and to center and follow through among others. This core issue of the generation of power in Aikido will be explored from various angles with both weapons and by extension, empty handed work.
