Re: ken tai jo kata where ken wins?
Thanks for your reply, I'll look into this.
It just doesn't make sense that in all ken tai jo kata in aikido, the jo always win. Did O Sensei have a preference for the Jo? Or just to make an emphasis on keeping distance? If so it still doesn't make sense as a good irimi is fundamental in aikido, and you need good irimi to enter into the blind range of the Jo.
