Sutemi Waza

Many believe that sutemi waza has no place in Aikido. Well, Mochizuki Sensei didn't quite think like that, and incorporated a series of sutemi from his experience in Gyokushin Ryu Jujutsu into his Yoseikan. The result is a very nice blend of the sutemi with the aiki and ju principles of the art.

The following are just two examples of Yoseikan sutemi waza. Hope you enjoy!
