Aikiken Sword Exercises for Aikido
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.
On the video clip above 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...
