Question Correct Sequencing of Aikido Techniques?

Greetings All,

I am trying to get my head around the correct sequencing of the techniques in Aikido. Is it right to say that these are meant to be in a Japanese numeric order that is translated to an English numeric order? The list that I have goes like this, but I am not sure that I have the actual order of techniques correct. I apologise if the spelling is not correct as I am trying to work from memory. My thoughts are that I have 1-6 correct, but I think the order of 7-10 is not correct. Any help would be appreciated!

Also to add, is there a uniform description in a few words of each of the techiques. Such as Techinage being "Heaven and Earth Projection" for example?

1, Ikkyo
2, Nikkyo
3, Sankyo
4, Yonkyo
5, Gokyo
6, Tenchinage

7, Shionage
8, Iriminage
9, Kaitenage
10, Kotegaeshi.

Any sequence beyond ikkyo, nikkyo, sankyo, yonkyo, kokyo is arbitrary within each style/school's pedagogy and in some there is no "sequence."

I believe I answered this in another thread, did I not? This "sequence", if it exists, is specific to your dojo. Ask your sensei.

Re: Correct Sequencing of Aikido Techniques?

Thankyou, I looked up the Japanese translations of the english numerics 1 through to 10 and got more confused as I could not see a correlation, as I formerly beleived that Ikkyo meant one and so forth!

Re: Correct Sequencing of Aikido Techniques?

As said before, the "locks" are "numbered", ikkyo meaning first technique up to gokyo, meaning 5th. You may be confused because sometimes different words are used for the position, ie 4 is shi where 4th is Yon? hence yonkyo. Some schools will also have a 6th technique, rokyo which others schools may call hiji kime osae (an elbow pin). I believe some schools even count up to nine locks, Kukyo!

But the others you name are merely descriptive names and have nothing to do with numbering eg. Iriminage = entering throw.

See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aikido_...ues#Techniques For a description of some common names, but don't be surprised if the terminology varies a little in your dojo. Funny thing is having been around a while and studied a few styles, you get to know what the parts of the words mean, and generally can work out what the name means even if its not what you call it in your dojo.

Btw, I think you mean shiho-nage, not shio-nage. Shio-nage means salt through (like they do before the start of a sumo match, I suppose)
