Kaeshiwaza or Reversals is the application of Aiki principles on the part of the uke in Aikido practice. This set offers a delineation of the principles that govern the ability to reverse a technique instantly if ones partner leaves an opening. It is not a basic technique video but rather is intended for the advanced practitioner who already has a firm foundation in Kiho Waza (basic technique) and wishes to take the study of "connection" deeper by learning to apply the same principles which nage uses for executing effortless technique in his or her role as the uke. Kaeshiwaza is the ultimate expression of proper ukemi in that it requires continuous connection with the partner and a relaxed but energized sensitivity that allows one to reverse a technique in the instant ones partner leaves the slightest opening. This set covers the "how to" behind the reversal it is not an attempt to make an exhaustive study of the many reversals that exist in Aikido technique. Kaeshiwaza Vol 2 (available separately) covers the basic kihon waza of Aikido and a set of possible reversals for each one. This set covers the principles that make all reversals possible.
