Movie Reviews

Contents of this DVD
David Brown | NY | 06/21/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Aikido is a harmonious system of defense which blends with the movements of an attacker to bring about his downfall. This is a step by step teaching guide to Aikido with a leading Chinese instructor. Contents include warm ups, Shikko (knee walking), techniques from a kneeling position, bowing etiquette, techniques of parrying, hitting, locking and throwing, breakfalling training done gradually, the basic 17 Randori no Kata - essential for all beginners, the counters to the basic 17, free practice, advanced balance breaking (Sichihon no Kuzushi), training with a safe rubber knife (Tanto Randori).
A brief illustrated history of the art is included with photographs of Morihei Uyeshiba and unique early photographs of his contemporaneous Japan.
Techniques are shown at normal speed, slow motion and freeze frames so that students can see how a technique should look when it is completed. The video closely follows the Aikido training program.
With Dr. Lee, Ah Loi, 7th Dan - 42 minutes"

"This disk played fine for me. I just started taking Aikido, and this disk allows me to see at my own pace the techniques of the movements. In class, it's done so quick, this gives me the chance to study the footwork and movements at a slower speed and understanding of how it is done.
Good purchase."

"I wished I had a good video of Aikido when I was first studying it. I cannot compare this video to others as this is the only one I have seen. It does show the various techniques. I would have liked more content and explanation, but I'm pleased with the video. I feel good about this purchase."
