Aikiken Sword Exercises for Aikido


Here are links to the video clips of the aikibatto iai exercises, which are done solo with a sword. There is one clip for each exercise, a bit above 1 MB in size. Hopefully, the quality is good enough for seeing the techniques clearly.



       I have done the exercises rather slowly, for the sake of visibility. In normal training, they should be done in the speed that the attack calls for - or in solo training, as fast as you are able. When learning the exercises, though, a slow tempo is the best.

       Notice also that I have posted video clips of the duo exercises, done together with an attacker, both using bokken. They are here.

       I have also posted a 3 minute video clip (7 MB) where I do some iai forms from here and there. I can't say that I approve of every detail. My posture is far from perfect, I tend to sort of nod at the cuts, which are often not enough extended forward, I do a meaningless extra movement with the saya right before noto, et cetera - in spite of my thirty-some years doing iai. Well, well, something to work on at next keiko... You find the video above, as a YouTube link, and also here.
