AIKIDO TECHNICAL TIPS
AIKIDO EXERCISES

Kokyu Ho Undo
Tenkan Exercise - Paired Practice

Kokyu Ho Undo exercise in paired practice prepares both uke and nage to move actively around each other in united momentum. This is the "aiki". The uke attacks the nage by grabbing his wrist. The nage responds by pivoting on the side of the uke. The stance of the nage will be the same stance as the uke. They will be side by side. The uke responds by stepping forward, turning towards the victim and attacking again.

Note that the closer the nage is to the attacker after the pivot, the safer it is for the nage.
