Tai no henko

In the below video Morihiro Saito Sensei demonstrates and provides instruction on the traditional version of tai no henko as practised by the Master Morihei Ueshiba (Founder of Aikido) in the immediate post war period.

Tai no henko is practised at most most classes in our dojo as it contains within it the fundamental principles that underpin Aikido turning movements.
