Kiryu Aikido Visits Tanshijuku (2/13)
Kiryu Aikido had the great opportunity to train and Aikikai Tanshinjuku last Saturday (2/13). We worked on gyakuhanmi katatedori techniques. Izawa sensei had us work on fist and formost by keeping our hands inside out center. Then by moving our centers and keeping our partner off balance we can throw our partners with power and strength. Also through moving our bodies in sync with the energy given us we need to not fight the direction, but move with it. It is always a pleasure and learning experience seeing Aikido in action and learning Izawa sensei’s distinctive style.
