One of our technical emphases for 2015 (see the sidebar at the right) is Koryu Dai Ni, because one of our shodans is working this kata up for his nidan rank demo. For his benefit and viewing pleasure, I figure to do a series of posts about this kata.
Japanese and European Tomiki aikidoka tend to group the first 11 techniques together into one group, but here in Southwest Mississippi nobody has ever accused us doing things the right way ;-) so I like to classify the first three techniques as one set, sort of stating a set of themes for the kata, and the next eight techniques are a second set.
