Re: Recommend good DVDs?

Since I havent been to the old dojo this is only second hand info:

Hitohiro Saito is definitly still teaching both aikiken and aikijo.

Hiroaki Nemoto (Ibaragi Aikikai Branch dojo) teaches aikiken and aikijo (atleast when he was in Sweden last year).

I´m not sure about Shigemi Inagaki, maybe Jakob can fill in on that one, or one of the russian members since Inagaki was in St Petersburg a couple of weeks ago.

Saito senseis western students, ex: Pat Hendricks. Ulf Evenås etc is definitly still teaching aikiken and aikijo.

Altough I´ve heard rumors that Isoyama has gutten rid of the old dojos makiwara and tanren and that some of the "new" senior instructors dont like weapons training......

Maybe the "Saito people" aint "Saito people"?
