Video: “Too bad you missed seeing Koichi Tohei Sensei… Actually, you didn’t!”

“More of Koichi Tohei’s Insights on Ki Training?”

This video is the second part of several hours of rare video footage taken during a seminar taught by Koichi Tohei Sensei in Osaka in July, 1983. Tohei Sensei continues his presentation of Ki principles and techniques in clear language and with repeated demonstrations to communicate his message effectively. He taught his approach as Shin Shin Toitsu Aikido, or Aikido with Ki, as it was often known. Tohei Sensei’s methods also included a healing technique called Kiatsu.

Videos such as these allow those who missed the opportunity to train with many of aikido’s greatest teachers–all direct students of the Founder, Morihei Ueshiba–to erase time and distance and partake of their knowledge directly.

Modern technology has allowed us to preserve and disseminate these precious documents on a broadscale. Take advantage of these resources to advance your martial arts skills and personal growth.

    Can the video of this seminar be purchased?

    • Our focus now is to digitize important historical materials. We don’t have any immediate plans for DVDs, but we will try to post more video clips on the Aikido Journal Members Site.
