Here at the frontier, the leaves fall like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians, there are still two cups at my table.

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.

Vintage Yoshinkan Aikido Videos

I stumbled on these vintage videos of Yoshinkan Aikido. Shioda Sensei is a young man.

Perhaps this is much what Aiki Budo looked like? Enjoy

I practiced Aikido, I liked a Shioda´s book, I believe aikido can work, etc.

But the movement at 0:17 sucks. He gives his back to be striked. It´s a demonstration, but I didn´t like it.

Sorry for english mistakes.
