Ichiro Shibata Sensei at Winter Aikido Seminar in Florida in 2012

Quantity:

This excellent video which features Ichiro Shibata, 7th dan, illustrates several important principles of aikido. First of all, while the techniques are effective, they are applied without the use of physical force and with excellent positioning. Shibata Sensei is the initiator in almost all cases. This, in effect, neutralizes uke’s ability to launch a strong attack. Notice how when executing iriminage, Shibata Sensei sets himself up in parallel to uke achieving an excellent blend in preparing for the throw.
