A trick and a little presentation of how American Ki-Society aikido looks like and goes so far with Kashiwaya Sensei.
Here’s a trick:
So the paper doesn’t tear while the bamboo breaks after a hit, just a trick… People like it! Besides Aikido he’s training with weapons, so I guess the trick is not something you can do from a first attemp.
You do get the point that he’s not Aikikai and if you do aikido and able to recognize Toheis style – go ahead an reconize it, it’s alive! With all those Toheis jumps and whole body moves.
