Open hand techniques
Sugawara Sensei teaches open hand aikido techniques based on his years of study...
Sugawara Sensei teaches jo techniques and the 31 forms as taught by the founder Morihei Ueshiba under whom he studied. In addition to these forms, Sugawara Sensei also developed specific jo kata for aikido students that have been taught now for 40 years.
The following videos have been selected by Sugawara Sensei as examples of his teachings. The first video below is of the 31 forms, taken by his students at East Madison Martial Arts, the second, is from his Finnish students of Turku Aikikai demonstrating the kumijo kata. On the right are 8 videos of the kumijo kata in fast and slow versions for easier learning, from his Swedish students.
The 8 videos below are demonstrations of Sugawara Sensei's kumijo kata. Thanks to the Järfälla aikido group from Sweden for these videos.
