My brother and I

I am a Shodan in Yoshinkan Aikido, I do not have a training schedual with my sensei that would be flexible with my brother and he seems to have a small intrest in learning some Aikido. I have been showing him the Basic movements and a little Kote-gashi. Is there anythign wrong with this? He is 3 years older than me, by far stronger (which hinders him ) and a fast learner. I am tempted to do the basic throws. When I teach him I show it step by step, then when we get to the throwing part I stop there and have him show the stuff up the the throwing part, after that he gets to throw me, but I direct him until he gets it on his own. He seems to grasp it fast and fine. But, I am worried about hurting/getting in trouble. ANy thoughts? I do not have a dojo to go to ahhhhhhhhhhhhh.

I say teach away. In our dojo we are almost required to be doing some sort of instructing at shodan.

But you really should check with your sensei.


"A pacifist is not really a pacifist if he is unable to make a choice between violence and non-violence. A true pacifist is able to kill or maim in the blink of an eye, but at the moment of impending destruction of the enemy he chooses non-violence."

How does it hinder him?

He either has the correct mechanics for the technique or he does not --- that's a coaching issue, isn't it?

IMHO, Aikido was meant to be shared. Enjoy the training.

You are so lucky, my brother who is 3 years younger than me has no interest in any martial arts whatsoever.

I try and demonstrate some particularly clever techniques on him sometimes but I only get negative feedback... "OW, OW, OW, no OW, you #$%$!" Its gotten so bad that I have started "disarming" the tv remote from my mother, and wrestling with the restless children of co-workers.

If only I had a brother who enjoyed throwing and getting thrown as much as me, I would never complain about getting too little chance to practice.
