This series uses traditional Aikido sword practice to explore concepts inspired by our exchange with the Inosanto Academy. Using a common language and movements familiar to all Aikido styles, we highlight key insights gained from our cross-training with some of the world's finest bladed weapon specialists.
Each concept contains a detailed explanation, fun new training methods to explore, and an overview of the implications for our Aikido practice.
