Hello, my name is Ronald Gotlin. I am the sensei and the lead instructor at the Biscayne Park Aikido School here in Biscayne Park Florida, I would like to welcome you all to our session. Thank you very much. We are going to be demonstrating some Aikido techniques. Aikido is the art of avoiding force and my partner for tonight, will be James Murphy and together we will try to familiarize you with some of the techniques in the Aikido realm. The first technique that we are going to demonstrate is a technique called Kubi Nage, which is a head throw, when someone is attacking you from a distance and you just go and get out of the way and throw that person using his own strength against him. Before I actually do the live throw, basically what is going to happen is as James attacks I am going to block him out of the way and attack his head and turn him in a circle to allow the throw to happen. In real time it is going to look like this and James will be thrown. For our purposes here, we actually hold onto to our partner rather than let the partner go and absorb all of the shock himself. And one more time from this direction as James attacks, you will notice that my first move is getting out of the way attacking and then supporting his weight as he falls. We will be right back.
