Re: NHK Aikido Documentary (until Dec 13, 2018)

I see that the NHK program features regular training in the Aikikai Hombu, with Doshu teaching, but also in the International Dojo in Saijo, Higashi-Hiroshima, of which I am listed on the Aikikai website as the sekininsha, or dojo-cho (chief instructor). I think that Werner, my colleague, gives an excellent explanation and shows excellent technique, but I had no knowledge at all that the programme was bering made. If I had known, I would have made every effort to participate.

Peter Goldsbury,
Chief Instructor,

10x for sharing. It was nice to watch. I really liked the part where they've shown Doshu's early morning class and the part when they analyzed the techniques with the kinesiologist.
If I remember correctly, they said that there are 1.6 million Aikido practitioners worldwide. Is this estimate plausible?

I watched the video and enjoyed so much that I provided a link to the members of my dojo. Many of them said that they enjoyed it too. Thanks as always!
