In Techniques Aikido is so SIMPLE! Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Aikido is a very simple and easy art to learn. I believe that you can learn all the techniques in one day.

Let's see, Ikkyo through Gokkyo are pretty much exactly the same except for the ending. Iriminage and Kotegaeshi are exactly the same except for the body part that the technique is being applied to. Then, you have shihonage, Kaitenage, which are a little bit different, but not by much. then kokyu nage and tenchi nage's difference is so slight, dropping one arm on the latter.

Koshinage, that's in every technique...

OK, so I strongly believe that you can learn every technique of Aikido on one day! BUT, learning the techniques, and being able to apply the techniques to an attack, now that's a totally different monster. That might take a bit longer. And I think that getting your black belt, definitely doesn't mean that you can do that...

Why do we make things so complicated......

I like shihonage. The idea is to learn to protect yourself all around on every corner.

Is it possible? To create a technique so powerful that you are protected all around all the time.

Trying to develop this kind of technique over the years has taught me many humbling lessons.

Shihonage is one of the more difficult techniques to perform with multiple attackers. It's much easier to perform kokyunage, or tenchinage, or ikkyo kokyunage. It's hard getting around the idea of having to turn your back when you have more than one person attacking.

The funny thing, is that when it is performed correctly, Uke, or your attacker is the one protecting you!

Please enjoy this clip:
