In the below video Chicko Xerri Sensei explores some of the key Aiki principles and concepts for absorbing and redirecting an attack. These principles and concepts include:
- Waiting until the attack is fully committed before attempting to defeat it;
- Timing when addressing an attack;
- Using equal energy contact in Aikido practice;
- Responding to an attack by welcoming, absorbing and then creating technique.
Our dojo is a Fudoshin dojo operating under the guidance and mentorship of Chicko Xerri Sensei, 6th dan AKI (Aikikai), Tokyo. Chicko Sensei has been practising and teaching Aikido for more than 40 years and is endorsed by Doshu Ueshiba.
