SAITO EMPTY HAND - Smooth smooth smooth is all one can say. Master Saito was one of Ueshiba's original students and his skill is totally amazing. He is fast he is filled with ki and yes he is very very smooth as you will surely see.
He teaches basic techniques and advanced techniques in this production. He will demonstrate for you as well as you will be able to see him teaching a class of students many of the techniques he personally will demonstrate in the first portion of the production. You will learn many advanced combinations as well as several reversals and just so much more only watching will make you a believer.
This man is so filled with ki it simply oussses out of him in every move he does. You will see as well how he starts and ends a class the exact way he was taught by his master the founder of Aikido Master Ueshiba. This production was shot at the same time as his 5 volume book set was photographed. This book set is no longer in print and if you can find them they sell for hundreds if not thousands of dollars each.
The entire production is as rare as can be. The first portion of it is in B/W and the last portion including a demonstration of Master Saito and as well him teaching a class is in full color. Both portions are very high quality.
