Below is my first “feature length” VLOG presentation. It is the product of many, many hours of learning and work on my part. As I roll these out, hopefully the process will become easier and more streamlined.
My posts tend to be information dense. This is largely due to the fact that I am trying to give away a lot of information efficiently. If one is serious about learning the contents, I strongly suggest re-reading the blogs multiple times. Some more information will be gained in a quick re-reading, and even more will be gained if the blogs are re-visited after one has seriously practiced over periods of time.
There is SO much information contained in Shirata sensei’s Tandokudosa that I cannot help but do them a disservice here. Nevertheless, I have determined that it would be an even greater disservice not to at least begin sharing them. The fact that the movements will appear familiar, points to their value as an interface between Aiki no Jutsu and Aiki Jujutsu. The fact that they are (for those that have had the good fortune to have had “hands on” learning from a teacher knowledgable of true Aiki and are willing to to put in the long years of ego crushing work to attain their goal) syllabus for learning true Aiki, makes them invaluable.
Please remember the degree of one’s success and development can be measured by the degree that one can demonstrate the attributes of Aiki, namely: Unusual stability in any angle, the inexplicable generation and delivery of phenomenal force, and the inexplicable “zeroing” out of force.
If you enjoy my True Aiki blog, imagine the level of understanding that only hands on training can bring! With a a world wide presence, there are opportunities to attend, or even host, one of my seminars. Folks from BJJ to Koryu, beginners to Menkyo holders, have enjoyably learned and trained together, why not join us?
True Aiki is free for all to read, but it is not free. As little as $1 can help to cover expenses and possibly add features to True Aiki.
Please consider becoming a patron of Allen Dean Beebe’s True Aiki. Your ongoing support will best assure the continuance and growth of True Aiki.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENEROUS SUPPORT!
