A solo kata.......


I was wondering if there were any solo kata's in aikido?

If so, are there any clips of people doing them?

If not, I will create one!!!

Oh, I forgot to mention, I'm talking about empty-handed kata.

Any body can "shadow" any of their techniques, and it looks very "kata"-like. Looks closer to tai chi than a karate kata, though. But it's not the same once you apply the technique. It's good practice if you are trying to remember the basic form of a technique.

We use the aiki taiso set (I believe originally from Ki Society) for warmups, and this makes a pretty good solo kata - lots to study in the movements, and they are not designed to require a partner. I have seen them in books by Tohei Sensei, and a good chunk of them are in Aikido and the Dynamic Sphere.
