I know that there has been lots of videos showing these techniques but thought it would be interesting to show these 2 videos with a different angle, showing more the hanmi and position of the ken & jo...

Ken suburi 1-7

Jo suburi 1-20 and 13 & 31 Kata

Hi, New video now available to anyone interested: Happo Giri and Ken Suburi...

Hey, what is that thing you are doing instead of "Migi nagari gaeshi tsuki"? On your Jo suburi?

Hi Chris,
I seem to have caused you slight upset upon reading your short reply. I am happy to explain: I thought the eight cuts could be followed by a thrust, which add an extra move and concentration to execute all sides. I think this is quite a normal exercise to include something extra to the original Happo Giri. I am aware of the Jo exercise and only emphasise this exercise with the ken. The principle is still within the teaching principles using hanmi, kokyu & zanchin.

I wasn't upset, I think you should do whatever you want with your practice. I had just never seen that before, and you didn't list what it was.

Thanks for your reply Chris. I thought I put a mention on the video though... Well never mind, I think it is self explanatory when viewing the video.

Dear Chris, If you are interesting in checking out the Migi nagari gaeshi tsuki with the jo, please feel free to view my other video, which shows all 20 jo suburis (and the 13 and 31 kata) at this link:

Best regards,

Hey guys,

Here is my latest post on Aikido.

In this post, I did a bit of research on 13 jo kata.

It is not easy to put this post together because I can only find limited content on the 13 jo kata.

I guess it is not a popular Aikido technique like irimi nage or kote gaeshi

Let me know what you think.
