primary kata

The four videos below constitute the four basic kata of Aikibojitsu: Diamond, Mirror, Fire, and Eagle. Like Short Forms, kata are highly defined with specific rhythmic patterns not only for each Short Form within the kata, but for the entire kata as well. A perfect, preformal expression of the kata precedes each practice of the movements; perfection is sought by eliminating even the smallest deviation from that preformal demand.
