The Essence of Aiki: an Interview with Seigo Okamoto Soshi �

New blog post! The Essence of Aiki: an Interview with Seigo Okamoto Soshi - Part 1:

"These three elements, applied as subtly and as small as possible in technique are Aiki. As to the techniques themselves, as I have shown you today they take many different forms, but one cannot understand them through the form alone! For example, if one grabs my chest or if one grabs my shoulder, I execute the same movement using those three elements. For that reason, however I am grabbed I throw them down with the same movement."

Enjoy!

Chris
