As per request of Shioda Aikido Dojo dōjō-chō Masahiro Shioda, in part 2 we focus on agete executed using internal bujutsu (naidō-bujutsu) body mechanics, demonstrated by Akuzawa sensei and Robert John hanshi.
The seminar drew many applications, largely owing to the visibility generated by Akuzawa sensei’s collaboration on the Shioda Masahiro Youtube channel. Unfortunately, owing to lockdown restrictions, the number of participants had to be limited.
Since the vast majority of participants had no previous exposure to Aunkai, Akuzawa sensei chose to introduce an selection of the exercises used in standard classes for this seminar.
We extend our thanks to all those who participated in the sminar, and look forward to training together again in the future.
