Re: H. Saito does 31 count kata.

Hmmm...even though you have a point there Michael watch what you say. Because in that video Hitohiro sensei did all of the moves. All 31 of them. Because it was so fluent, graceful, and an untrained eye it looks different.

Hitohiro Sensei has done more aikido hours than you and I and probably everyone in this thread put together. He learned from Osensei himself and his legendary father. He grew up and trained a lot with the current doshu as well. So he is pretty up there in terms of experience, wisdom, and knowledge. I think he is in a point of his aikido life where he's got lots of energy and he wants to bring Iwama aikido back as in waaaayyy back to old Osensei aikido days.
