Katsuyuki Kondo

Daito-ryus Kurumadaoshi Battlefield technique adapted to dojo

The application of Aiki in the techniques demonstrated by Katsuyuki Kondo is analysed below.

Analysis

At a time of 1.52 Uke attacks with yokomenuchi. Tori induces Uke to apply Aiki by applying an atemi to Uke's carotid artery as he blocks the attack. To minimise the impact of the atemi, Uke reverses the muscle torque about the knee joint of his rear leg causing him to become unbalanced to the rear by the contact reaction force due to the block.

Aiki is applied in the same way when the atemi is to the solar plexus.

Amazing Techniques of Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu!

The application of Aiki in the techniques demonstrated by Katsuyuki Kondo is analysed below.

Analysis

At a time of 0.40 Uke attacks with shomenuchi after grabbing Tori. Tori induces Uke to apply Aiki by applying pressure with his thumb to a nerve above the elbow as he blocks the shomenuchi at the beginning of the forward movement. To minimise the pain at the pressure point, Uke reverses the muscle torque about the ankle joint of his rear leg causing him to become unbalanced to the rear by the contact reaction force due to the block.
