Discussion with Miyamoto, Tissier, and Okamoto Shihan

Here is a discussion I just published between three leading Aikikai Shihan: Miyamoto Tsuruzo Shihan (8th Dan Aikikai), Christian Tissier Shihan (8th Dan Aikikai), and Okamoto Yoko Shihan (6th Dan Aikikai).

Enjoy!

Thank you very much for this interesting interview! Especially what they said about Ukemi und the role of being a teacher was very inspiring.

Nihongo to furansugo wakarimasen. I really admire Okamoto Sensei in particular and would have really enjoyed listening to her if only I could have understood what she was saying. Come on Rosetta Stone!!!

Thanks Walter. Now I've proven that I'm ignorant in yet another realm. LOL.

Re: Discussion with Miyamoto, Tissier, and Okamoto Shihan

Took me a few minutes to realize that the cc was likely to be somewhere and to go look for it. That after I decided both the French and Japanese were too fast and too advanced for my “Excuse me, where is a toilet?” Skills...

Re: Discussion with Miyamoto, Tissier, and Okamoto Shihan

(Edited slightly for better English translation)

"...the teacher who wants to instruct students has to navigate between those three (Shu-ha-ri) states. They might have achieved "Ri", the restructuring, because they have internalized the principles. But they must constantly go back to show the kata to the students. Otherwise, we can't go further, so we must constantly go back to the "Shu" of the construction of the kata. We have no choice. Sometimes we do something different. It's a bit of a trap for the teacher.

Sometimes, I don't teach the Aikido I'd like to do myself. I teach the Aikido that people need. We navigate between those states. Sometimes, we no longer know where we are. Sometimes we are a bit confused.

I think it's very important to understand those three states. I define them as the kata, the form, and then the "kneading of the body". And then going back to the kata. When all of this is done, the hips are made, the hand position is right, and the body can express itself. But we need limits. That's why we need models." - Tissier Shihan
