Koichi Tohei on DVD?

Hya

Can anyone recommend a good DVD showing Tohei demonstrating regular/or Ki aikido? I understand at one point he was going to leave all his techniques/legacy down on a DVD/video set for future generations....can anyone confirm whether this has been done and is available?

Many many thanks in advance

Lee

Re: Koichi Tohei on DVD?

I just went to the website and checked. The dvd I am thinking of is "Aikido Classics 1". I used to own it, but gave it away as a birthday present to a friend.

Re: Koichi Tohei on DVD?

There is a 12 video set available in Japanese from Ki no Kenkyukai H.Q. You can only buy the videos as a set for 120,000 yen and 10,000 yen shipping to the U.S. They did not mention what format these videos are in.

This video set includes Kiatsu, Ki-aikido taigi, Oneness rhythm exercise video etc. I assume there are aikido techniques also. These are probably the videos you're writing about.

There might be selling restrictions, like getting your Ki Society Chief Instructor's signature on the order. BTW 120,000 yen currently converts to $1,066.52 USD.

It is not practice that makes perfect, it is correct practice that makes perfect.

Re: Koichi Tohei on DVD?

The Ki Society videos are a tough ticket, but are great videos. If you can secure the OK from a Ki Society Chief Instructor for these, you might as well spring for another $200 and get a copy of the book "The Way to Union with Ki". There's no other way you'll ever get one.

The AJ "Postwar Classics I" DVD mentioned above is just about the only other way to get Tohei Sensei on video, and it comes on DVD as well (good stuff). One other thing you might consider are the Maruyama Sensei seminar DVD's available on budovideos.com. Much similar information, from a top Tohei disciple. Click on the "Koichi Tohei" icon on the budovideos.com front page for these.

Clark's posting reminded me that Kashiwaya Sensei has test criteria and taigi tapes for sale from The Southern California Ki Society. There are no restrictions on ordering them.

These tapes cover the Ki Society taigi and testing criteria up to sandan. They can be bought individually or in sets.
