Movie of Aiki Free Style
The way we train we always start off with a Kuta strike from the lead foot. That strike can change to what ever is needed depending on the situation. In Aiki the strike is followed by a throw that frequently involves another strike. This gives us full integration of the Kuta with the Aiki.
This demonstration is completely freestyle. I have no idea what the attacks will be. We play this game almost every class. Nage is just moving with the action. Only two techniques were executed. The rest is just movement and the first technique is really just a hip twist.
We used to play this game by faking the punches. This did not create the proper dynamic for the throws. Now we come in for the strikes but just push our partner's.
