    "Connection in Aikido" by Ania Small

    "Connection in Aikido" by Ania Small
    From: Jun Akiyama posted on 9. May 2017, 09:39am
    URL: http://aikidoofmaine.com/connection-in-aikido/

    Here's a nice article entitled "Connection in Aikido" by Ania Small (5th dan, Aikido of Maine) focusing on what "connection" means to four aikido instructors: Mitsugi Saotome, Hiroshi Ikeda, Bill Gleason, and Dan Messisco. From the article: "Connection is essential to Aikido, yet it’s not often talked about. It’s difficult to define, and even harder to teach. So what is the path for discovering unity in our own body and in movement with our partner? How can it be taught? This article focuses on how four teachers: Mitsugi Saotome, Hiroshi Ikeda, Bill Gleason and Dan Messisco describe connection, and what methods they use to help their students learn how to move in unison with their partners. In addition to experiencing their teaching in class, I asked for additional clarifications of their approach."
