Re: YouTube: Christian Tissier, 2014

Hi, I am the producer of the video.
Due to the fact that Christian Tissier performs a constantly evolving aikido and the video is shortened, it is necessary to put the shihounage-issue in the right context.
It is all about getting uke to be more and more an equal partner in his developement. On this and other seminars Christian showed how to absorb the usual attemt of shihounage and therefore nage has to change the way of doing. It is ment for very advanced uke following an elaborated developement, adding new qualities and making nage better. It is not ment for being more brutal and I exclusively saw Christian doing it this only to someone who is capable of dealing with it without pain or harm.
Greetings, Bernhard
