Re: Article: Ellis Amdur, "The Use of Weapons in Aikido Training"

Both those guys are very good friends of mine and in about 10 minutes I will leave to train with uke (the guy on the left). To answer your question yes that is exactly the kata I was talking about.

This may explain my feelings about weapons work which in my experience was not that different from kata I learned in kendo (Shodokan is faster) or the one koryu I briefly trained in. A lot of the aikiken and aikijo discussion goes over my head.
