Re: Iwama Ryu dojo

Some other important things about Iwama aikido is that it follows the founders trainging system very strictly. ie every class must start with taino henko and morotodori kokyu ho and end in sawari waza kokyu ho. we always train in the three levels of resistence. ie hard soft flowing. this was the founders way.. also training must be done with strong kiai ALWAYS. this is one of the big difference in iwama. Kishamura stopped this.

Sorry if this offends other people but he did ask, and all this is easily found on the net. Also in the origianl Budo
