Aikijo 31 Kumi Jo
7 ways to do the Aikijo 31 Kumi Jo
Morihiro Saito Sensei learned the jo during his 25 year service and tutelage under Morihei Ueshiba (Osensei).
Osensei was still perfecting the Aikijo, Aikiken and Aikido. Saito Sensei was Osensei’s assistant during that period in Iwama Japan.
Saito Sensei became the guardian of the Aiki Shrine in Iwama and vowed that Iwama Style or Iwam Aikido will always be true to Osensei’s Aikido.
Saito Sensei put together 31 Jo moves that can be learned and passed on to the next generation.
These 31 Jo No Kata can be practiced with a partner. When practiced with a partner the 31 jo moves are known as ’31 Kumi Jo’.
Here are 7 ways to that 31 Kumi Jo, I hope this help you with your 31 Kumi Jo.
Also have a look at Iwama Aikido Deshi Society members do Aikido.
