Most Aikido sword training with bokken is relatively slow. The fear of injury keeps practitioners from optimizing speed, intention, power, etc. Use of the fukuro shinai for Aikido sword training allows safe practice at full speed. With full intention, the energetic side of side work can be trained. Discover the difference between connection vs reaction time, etc. Over 90 minutes of material shot at a special “Shinai Training” seminar at Aikido Eastside in Bellevue, WA.
This DVD set is the third in a series breaking down the principles at work in Aikido weapons . Starting with the “Principles of the Sword & Kumitachi 1-5”, then the “Kumitachi 6 – 12”, and now the “Aikido Sword: Shinai Training”, this DVD puts high level sword technique within reach of any serious Aikido practitioner. Contains demonstration and lecture!
This DVD is now available in two formats as Aikido video downloads. A very large ISO file which allows you to burn your own copy of the DVD and a much smaller .mp4 or .m2ts file formatted for viewing on a portable device.
