AIKIDO TECHNICAL TIPS
AIKIDO EXERCISES

Samurai Walk

Samurai walk is done on the knees. It was explained several times to me as a youngster in Aikido class that in old Japan most of the activities done inside the home or a building was done on the knees such as eating, discussing business, etc.

In addition to this, most typical Japanese buildings were never very tall because natural resources such as lumber were very scarce and costly many years ago, so standing in an erect position was not an option. Knee-walking or samurai walking was a common practice in family life and combat.

Please be patient. Because of the intense graphical content of the animated graphic, the picture will take a little more time to download to your browser. Thank you.
