Aikido

Review of Nishio’s instructional video

“It’s been very long since I have so enjoyed an aikido tape. Nishio sensei’s demonstrations are not fancy or spectacular, nor ‘hard’ or brutal. No mangling or killing of pinned opponents (with various shouts) as in certain styles, instead great attention is devoted to the most crucial but very often overlooked phase of the encounter, the time up to the initial contact.”
