Yasuo Kobayashi and Fumiko Nakayama on Living Aikido: Part 2

New blog post!

Yasuo Kobayashi and Fumiko Nakayama on Living Aikido: Part 2 - A Roundtable Discussion with the Kodaira Aikido Renmei

Some very interesting insights into early training at the post-war Aikikai Hombu Dojo, and some thoughts from Yasuo Kobayashi and Fumiko Nakayama on how modern ukemi evolved.

Best,

Chris

Re: Yasuo Kobayashi and Fumiko Nakayama on Living Aikido: Part 2

Great stuff.

It confirms some of the things Kobayashi Sensei used to talk about after early morning training - being the first to actually teach ukemi to beginners, a certain choke hold being his own creation, etc.

I miss training with Kobayashi Sensei.

Warning: Do not bend, fold or otherwise abuse... until we get to the dojo..
