M. Ueshiba Doshu’s 2018 Annual New Year Aikido Demonstration at the Hombu dojo in Tokyo. Please take note of the Doshu’s technique displayed in the ideal–it is neither fast nor slow, nor is it all forceful in it’s execution. The display is rather a solid, non-egocentric display of aikido’s subtle power with  it’s characteristic blending and flowing movement.  Please enjoy this fine video.

This is an excellent interview with Christian Tissier–it’s a solid interview covering the depth of his training in Tokyo for many years. I recommend you watch this while you’re NOT in a hurry to  “get something done.” Watch it, learn from it, and enjoy it. Enjoy it with your morning coffee!  What more could be said?
