A great bit of footage of Saito Sensei performing ‘basic’ techniques outdoors.

This proves to me that even one of “The Greats” like Saito sensei were constantly evolving their technique, making the notion of one style of Aikido being ‘better’ than another ludicrous!

Thanks for taking the time to read this blog, and I hope it makes you want to find out more about Aikido
