I had a vision of a kata with 3 attakers with bokken.

1: Shomen
You make a step to the left directing the bokken down to the side of you with your bokken, you hit your attaker's weapon with a shomen type strike (to push his blade down in the ground) and then, you move on him, with your blade striking him right in the thorax. take a step foward and since bokken are in wood, your opponent will fall down

2: Shomen
Left of you, there is a second attaker that start shomen also (your bokken being down from the first cut) you block him like the first one but instead of getting his blade down in the ground, you hit him directly yokomen.

3: Shomen
At your back, your last opponent is starting a shomen on you. You run into him with a blade striking him in his torso and then, since you are past him, do a 180 to hit him shomen (if he is still standing...)

This summer, we are a couple of friends who wishes to practice weapons by our own (5th kyu to 2nd kyu) It's one kata I wish to try to find if it works or not. But for now, it is a dream.

Hello All,

My name is Vincent Dorval, I'm currently 5th Kyu and I train at the Loretteville Dojo. We train both traditionnal and modern combat effective way. As an example, we do ushiro the traditionnal way but also grabbed directly from the back.

I'm starting my blog to keep track of my studies of the aikido. I'm willing to publish all my findings to help others to learn aikido more easily.

from now, as I am 5th kyu, here's a list of what seems to be things that are important to learn at that level and before:

-Control the elbow, you will control the body
-Don't push the elbow, grab it
-Your arms should be completely extended for ikyo
-In a choke, you have to make noise to be released
-Chiko hurt withouts your gi pants
-Even if you are small, you have to go down to pass under for shionage
-Kotegaeshi is a push and twist technique, not only twist
-For sankyo, you have to get the hand of the uke in line with the arm and elbow
-Koshinage hurts if you don't hit the ground before it hit you
-If you move one of your arms, you have to move a leg to.

That's it for now.
