-The Essence of the Aiki of Morihiro Saito Sensei
Takemusu Aiki is the beginning of modern day AIKIDO that was the accomplishment of O'Sensei Morihei UESHIBA in IWAMA.
Today, there is no technique of O'Sensei Morihei UESHIBA any more: "everything changed" said Morihiro SAITO Sensei in 1999.
This change was done by his son Sensei Kishomaru UESHIBA who made AIKIDO more reachable for he would say that it wasn’t easy for anyone to understand the techniques of the founder The documents that tell this story are part of the extra features of this film: they come from Morihiro SAITO Sensei who gave them to me in person.
Aiki Bukikai preserves and develops the teaching received from Morihiro SAITO Sensei in IWAMA, honors his memory with loyalty while respecting the choice and the voice of all those who assume his ways without conflict : this is the principle of TAO.
The essence of AIKI taught by Pat. GUERRI, SOKE, through this film is a large range of evident techniques that will get you to know the faithful teaching of the late Morihiro SAITO: this is the evidence for the gratitude to Morihiro SAITO Sensei who devoted his whole life in order to preserve this teaching.
AIKI BUKIKAI is the creation of an infinite range of techniques, once the principles of the AIKI have been perfectly assimilated.
Aiki Bukikai includes the Aiki-ken, the Aiki-jo : Bukiwasa & Tai-Justu.
In order to respect his memory, we chose not to keep "TAKEMUSU AIKI", since it was a loan name used by SAITO Sensei.
Pat. GUERRI is the only European to have stayed enough time in the place where she was for three years the student of the late Morihiro SAITO.
During that everyday training, she was particularly committed, overwhelmed by her passion, living in the holy places of IWAMA Dojo.
She was taught during 12 years during her many trips to Japan, in order to always get back to the roots in IWAMA Dojo, close to Morihiro SAITO Sensei.
