In this rare video, Minoru Hirai, Founder of Korindo Aikido, demonstrates his free-form use of the ken and jo. What is remarkable is his perfect posture and rock-solid stability of movement. His style of aikido remains little known today as he left Morihei Ueshiba’s Kobukan Dojo during the war and pursued an independent path from that point forward.
