Bokken and Jo Kata/Techniques

Hi all!

I've been looking on the t'internet for video bokken and jo solo katas and paired practice, but I have only been able to find a couple and they have only been short.

Does anyone know of any good links for either or both of these types of technicque? I am more interested in the bokken work as i would like to see how it compares to what I has been taught.

Thx in advance

Thanks,
Rob

Re: Bokken and Jo Kata/Techniques

There are a couple of good DVD's of Saito Sensei available from Aikido Journal. Worth the investment.

Johanna - Thanks!! The bokken clips were exactly the sort of stuff I look for.

Bryan - Well.... i wasn't actually planning on spending any money But you're right, a couple of DVD would be good for reference. I'll have to start savin' my pennies.

Thanks,
Rob

Re: Bokken and Jo Kata/Techniques

Oh, does anyone know if the DVDs Bryan is refering to are Aikido techniques for defense against someone with a jo or bokken (armed vs unarmed) or are they armed vs armed techniques or both?

Thanks,
Rob

Re: Bokken and Jo Kata/Techniques

The DVDs are a great starting point for both solo and paired practice. In particular they focus on armed versus armed.

Certainly a worthwhile investment.

David.

Re: Bokken and Jo Kata/Techniques

I would without a doubt recommend that you invest in the DVD-set with Nishio sensei. He shows a lot of tehcniques both without weapons, with a bokken and with jo. In addition he also shows the techniques as paired techniques with sword against sword (ken-tai-ken) and sword against jo (ken-tai-jo). Finally he has created a set of Iaido-like sword-based katas (aiki-toho) that are closely related to the way he does aikido.

Wearth every penny if you ask me - but of course it might be far from what you usually do, which would limit the benefit, unless you are REALLY serious and are ready to study a new way of doing things. I think there might be a few clips for download on aikijournal so go check it out.

Re: Bokken and Jo Kata/Techniques

Our Sensei at Yellow Springs Aikido in Ohio produced a fairly exhaustive set of video clips of the Iwama-style repertoire several years ago. There is an entire CD devoted to Bukiwaza, and it includes all of the basic Iwama weapons stuff as well as a sampling of variations. I highly recommend them, and you can order (by mail) from this website:
