Short Forms

Short forms are the heart of Aikibojitsu training. While they are almost limitless in specific expression (there are currently 270 distinct Short Forms), they are not arbitrary. Each form has a rhythmic pattern based on the harmonic frequency of the stick. Perfection is sought in the explicit expression of the exponential emergence of power implicit in a given form.
