Re: Gozo Shidoa video clip

Hi there.

This is my first post on aiki web.I am a Japanese and was a member of a university aikido club back in the late 80s.

I consider myself lucky that I had several chance to attend the black belt seminars under shioda sensei and to be directly exposed to his techniques.

The Video was shot in the 80s, and the uke for the sword is not Ito sensei, it is Sakurai sensei, then the youngest shihan of Yoshinkan.

He left Yoshinkan in the end of 1990 and created his own organization.

Sakurai sensei was a very good Aikidoka, I had great experiences training with him.

sorry for my bad english.
