AIKIDO TECHNICAL TIPS
AIKIDO EXERCISES

Kokyu Ho Undo
Tenkan Exercise

Kokyu Ho Undo, or as it is also known as tenkan is an essential movement of nearly every Aikido technique. It prepares and coordinates the body to move with in a balanced state while in motion with the movement of the attacker.

Kokyu ho undo is a way to deal with a frontal attack, by going around the aggressor's body. Many instructors have defined kokyu ho undo as a defense by attacking the agressor's attack and actively moving around the nage's body.

  1. Kokyu ho undo - Tenkan exercise - Single

  2. Kokyu ho undo - Tenkan exercise - Paired Practice

  3. Multiple Kokyu ho undo
