Morihiro Saito passed away about 10 years ago, and he did not practice Yoshinkan. You might be thinking of Michiharu Mori, who teaches Yoshinkan in Queensland. I think one of the students at our dojo used to train with him.
oh right, you are correct! My bad! Because I know only the surname "Mori Shihan" and only that name comes to mind. Sometimes I'm thinking of going abroad to practice. Seeing the other countries way of aikido training. What's that gonna be called? Aikido tourism? Heheh.
Maybe one-two weeks everyday?
I'm not exactly sure, it really is different depending on how uke is coming in.
I tend to be more on the side or just behind, like you suggest. But I've even been in front sometimes. So long as uke's balance is compromised and I have their center, I'm happy.
right at the basic principles.
All of you can tobi ukemi? And feather falls?
