Takemusu Aikido Intercontinental has started a new series of articles called "Kajo".

One may say it is utterly provocative and sure enough it is stunning. But it is also extremely precise in terms of technique. More than an opinion, it is an analysis.

Food for thought.

Please tell it on the website itself (P.Voarino answers all questions). It seems AIkido is thinking about the fundamentals these days, beginning with the feet... Ah yes! Where do we put them.
The roppo stance is somehow a necessity of one wants to do happo giri, the very root of all movements...

Next article soon.

I couldn't help but notice that this thread and the thread on Morihei Ueshiba, Budo and Kamae (http://www.aikiweb.com/forums/showthread.php?p=303934) (discussing Chris Li's blog (http://www.aikidosangenkai.org/blog/archive/2012-02-27/morihei-ueshiba-budo-and-kamae) on the subject) are both in the "active threads", one next to the other, and appear to have a cross over in terms of source material.

Have you read the other thread (and the original blog) Leon? Wondering how the difference in translations affects, if at all, the articles you've linked.

Hi Rich,

Actually no link at all and I find that fact stunning, as if there was a need at the moment to go back to the fundamentals, ie the very stance, the feet positioning. ITAF (http://www.itaf-international.org/) has been working on hito e mi for a couple of years and it has purely and simply changed my way of being and practicing .

Of course I have read Chris' blog and I hope he'll keep writing for a long time as I find his thinking very necessary.

I really encourage you to write directly to Philippe Voarino on TAI (http://www.aikidotakemusu.org/en) website as he is the one who is competent to answer specific questions.

Best regards

No link at all, just a happy coincidence. :)

Even better, the "Budoshugyosha" blog is also discussing the same things:

Which was trigged by the discovery of the two streams of articles on TAI and Chris' blog. Since Budoshugyoshugasho (such a mouthful, let's say Eric) speaks japanese, he wanted to have a closer look. I really appreciate that people can collaborate and enrich each other - thanks internet...

Well, "Budoshugyosha" is much more macho then "Eric" - now I suppose that I'm going to have think up a better name than "Chris"... :)
