Hello All,
I need clarity on Chiba Sensei's bokken kata. I came across and link (http://kihon.aikido.org.hu/kata/chiba_8k.html) describing the kata which coincides with kata on his video titled "Aikido Technical Guidelines" Has this kata changed?, if so where can I get the updated info or video footage.

Thanks,

Orpheus
The movements you describe are the 8 movements devised by Chiba Sensei which utilise in the footwork virtually all the possible tai sabaki used in Aikido.This foot work contains irimi/tenkan /dirrection changing etc.If you care to drop me an private message I can assist you here.
