Re: New Seigo Yamaguchi DVD from Aikido Journal

No problem, Carsten. I had been watching the main Yamaguchi demo video (the one in Meiji University circa 1990, I think, where Yasuno, Mimuro and others take ukemi) for several years, but I didn't have any real clue about what was going on until I took ukemi for Endo. It was a real eye opener; it seemed that he would barely touch me and yet I had no power, my balance was broken, even if I was going all out. Since that day, Endo is the shihan whose movement I study the most. Germany is lucky to have him and Tissier as regular teachers.

best,

R
