Wrist techniques and floating techniques

Aiki with Patrick M.
  • tegatana with emphasis on sliding the feet vs. not sliding the feet. We also talked about how to hipswitch with grippy shoes on.
  • hanasu with emphasis on getting offline in #2,4,6,and 8 and emphasis on getting a releasing feeling on #5 and 7
  • nijusan tekubiwaza (wrist techniques) and ukiwaza (floating throws) with particular emphasis on the difference between shihonage and tenkai kotegaeshi. We also looked at the kotetaoshi-maeotoshi pair.
  • Ichikata part C shihonage variations


  1. Nice to meet you.

    I want to change information about a diet, exercise, fitness, health and others for a lot of people.

    I linked your site.
    Please link to my site.

    Thanking you in advance.

  2. Hey Patrick,

    Is this typical aikido curriculum or have you developed your own particular organization (part a, part b, part c, etc.)


  3. matthew - this terminology that i was using is pretty standard for Tomiki schools and styles based on Tomiki. Ichikata is a set of 23 techniques divided into 4 sets based on some organizing principle. set A is suwari, set B is vriations on oshitaoshi (katatedori ikkyo), set C is variations on shihonage, and set D is 2-hand grabs
