YouTube: Hiroshi Tada Shihan - Rare Aikido Demonstration (1957)



Here is a historical video of Hiroshi Tada (9th dan, Aikikai) demonstrating in 1957. The film, courtesy of Guillaume Erard, was part of André Nocquet's private 8 mm collection. Tada, born in 1929, started training with Morihei Ueshiba in 1948.

What are your thoughts on this video?

Hi Jun,
Tada Sensei has always been a favourite aikidoka of mine.Even at an advanced age he really displays powerful effective waza.Nice to see him iin earlier times.Great vid.The other vids are also excellent.As one would expect the O Sensei vid is superb.The Jo work in slow motion in particular is a classic vid.Keep up the good work.Lets have more of the same.Cheers, Joe
Ps I have tons of aikido stuff , however I do not know how to post it on the forum.

Re: YouTube: Hiroshi Tada Shihan - Rare Aikido Demonstration (1957)

I was interested to compare Tada sensei:

with Doshu Ueshiba Kisshomaru:

So slightly different techniques (Yonkyo vs Ikkyo), but the initial (common) timing and coordination of the contact puts Tada sensei ahead in my book....
