Where did the aikido we practice today come from? A man who played a critical role in the gestation of modern aikido is Koichi Tohei. Today, Tohei Sensei is a forgotten name in many quarters, surely an unconscionable omission. Through his many books in both Japanese and English, and his extensive travels in Japan and the USA, Tohei Sensei left a permanent mark on the content and pedagogy of aikido during the postwar period.
Every bit of well-researched information concerning the art adds to your storehouse of knowledge, and makes you a more well-rounded aikidoka. The Koichi Tohei Sensei DVD may fill a gap in your understanding of how modern-day aikido came into being.

Now you can easily remedy this situation by absorbing the contents of this information-packed DVD. You will begin to understand his vast contributions to the art, and get a first-hand look at his teaching methods and execution of aikido techniques.
