Re: YouTube: Takemusu Aikido videos

Hi all,

Sorry I forgot to mention that the Aikido I teach and practice is called Iwama Style Aikido.
Just in case anyone may wonder.' Iwama Style' is actually Aikikai Aikido, but the name was given separately and was renowned by Morihiro Saito Sensei who was a master in teaching Aikido and Bukiwasa (weapons practice) and their relationship with Taijutsu (empty handed techniques).

Morihiro Saito Sensei was one of the few students who had studied Aikido under the Founder Morihei Ueshiba O' Sensei, for I believe over 23 years. Morihiro Saito Sensei lived with O' Sensei Morihei Ueshiba in Iwama and had the opportunity to learn weapons with the Founder.

Today we have Hitohiro Saito Sensei (Morihiro Saito Sensei 's son) heading INTERNATIONAL DENTO IWAMA RYU and
Paolo Corallini Sensei and Ulf Evenas Sensei heading Takemusu Aikido Kyokai under Aikikai affiliation (which I am part of this organisation).
