Hi to everyone, I am a 4.th Kyu aikidoka, training in Istanbul. In our dojo, we do not train with Jo so often (only 2-3 times in 6 months yet). I would like to learn using jo more intensively. It is also good to progress the balance and tai-sabaki, what's more, you can train by yourself even if there is no uke to train with you, I think.
As I know, there is a Jo Kata in Aikido with 31 moves. Would it be good start point to learn these figures first? How could I improve this technique by myself...How is it in other Dojo's, do you train with jo often ?
I am happy to join aikiweb, greatings to all from Turkey
