“Tai no henko: building block for stable hips and the execution of ura techniques”

This is a video clip in which Morihiro Saito, 9th dan, explains aikido’s tai no henko exercise. Tai no henko (body blending) is one of several awase movements taught by Aikido Founder Morihei Ueshiba in each of his classes. This exercise enables students to stabilize their hips and teaches students how to blend with their partners in preparation for the proper execution of ura or turning techniques. Saito Sensei explains both the basic and ki no nagare versions of tai no henko in this video which is fully subtitled. Watch this video to learn the fine points of this essential exercise.

This video is excerpted from Morihiro Saito’s “Lost Seminars” video series

  1. I hope that as a result of your continuous efforts, many students wake up from their torpor. For this reason, my students and I have been supporting Aikido Journal.

    Please keep your enthusiasm Mr. Pranin.
