YouTube: Yoshimitsu Yamada and Mitsunari Kanai in 1970's



Here is an Aikido video of Yoshimitsu Yamada (currently 8th dan) and Mitsunari Kanai (8th dan as of his passing) back in the 1970's. From the description of the video, you can also see other aikido practitioners taking ukemi from these two, including Steve Kaufmann, Claude Berthiaume, Steve Pimsler, and Rick Stickles.

What do you think of this video?

Good ukemi.
On the other hand, we've come a long, long way since the days of Super 8.

Re: YouTube: Yoshimitsu Yamada and Mitsunari Kanai in 1970's

Great vid! I particularly like Kanais sensei's style. Very fluid, but martial....and great hair to boot! He seems to be too often overlooked, but his influence was quite broad here in the US, with partners like Yamada in NY, himself in Boston on the East Coast and others like the late Kensho Furuya sensei, who I believe studied with him whilst a student at Harvard, in LA on the West Coast. Good stuff, for sure. Thanks Jun!
