Video/DVD: "Aikido and Japanese Sword" DVD by William Gleason
Posted 3/29/2006 9:28pm [from Gene Kim]

In the modern practice of Aikido, the study of the sword has slowly started to disappear from training. In this new DVD, William Gleason Sensei (6th dan) demonstrates why the recognition of underlying sword movements is essential to the understanding of many Aikido techniques. See how the movements in traditional swordwork and those in Aikido barehanded techniques are essentially one and the same, and why the true benefit comes from experiencing the proper handling of the sword itself. Available at www.shobu.org.
