|Abstract:||In this DVD, see the fundamental forms of aikido as demonstrated by Endo Seishiro shihan. With 15 sections organized by attack, from shomen-uchi to suwari-waza, and chapters organized by technique, Endo sensei shows with control, clarity and precision the core forms, recorded beautifully at his dojo in Saku. This DVD will be a valuable asset to anyone seeking to study the details of basic aikido technique, as well as those who seek more broadly to deepen their understanding of aikido. Subtitled in English and Japanese, with bonus chapter. "When practicing Aikido kata, the most important thing is not the achievement of small, immediate goals like making the technique effective against your partner or throwing them strongly; rather, it is about learning how to use your body, the relation between you and your partner, and your inner state."
