Morihiro Saito: Jodori – Jonage, Hi-res video
This rare seminar filmed in the Iwama Dojo in 1988 captures the seldom-taught jo taking and throwing techniques (jodori / jonage) of aikido. Morihiro Saito Sensei offers detailed explanations and demonstrations of each of the jo techniques from multiple angles. He taught these specialized weapons techniques only occasionally, and we are fortunate to have had this videotape survive. English subtitles.
“The authoritative presentation of Jodori and Jonage techniques by Morihiro Saito, 9th dan!”
This rare seminar filmed in the Iwama Dojo in 1988 captures the seldom-taught jo taking and throwing techniques (jodori / jonage) of aikido.

Those who were lucky enough to attend a seminar conducted by Saito Sensei, or have viewed videos of seminars taught by this great master, will appreciate his unique ability to present the fine points of technique at all levels, from basic to advanced.
This video was shot inside the traditional Iwama Dojo where filming was normally not allowed. The occasion for the videotaping was the visit of a group of California aikidoka, led by Pat Hendricks and Bernice Tom, who join in training with the uchideshi of the day.
In this video, Saito Sensei takes great pain to stress important details necessary to be able to successfully execute these advanced jo techniques. He also describes the common errors that many practitioners commit, and explain why such methods don’t work and precisely what does.
