Bewegung & Lebenskunst

Out of Gyakku Hanmi Uke tries to block you to make usage of your bokken or katana. Don't fight him but instead accept the pressure against your navel and while giving in whirling around on the outside of his arm you come into the position to apply Shiho Nage Ura. To make use of your bokken you have to get enough space between the two of you. This is achieved by hitting his forehead with the end of the handle, tsuka-gashira. But, please, stop some distance before you really hit him! He will break down similar to the usual application of the Shiho Nage and space wil be there to cut towards his throat. Now do it without bokken in your hands but in exactly the same manner. It is flabbergasting easy and is a highly dynamic movement and makes a lot of fun to practice. It gives you an impression of how touchless throws can be done.

A traditional perspective to develop ones personality and to figure out why you are on this planet: As already (Western) ancient philosophers told us, it is the body and what you decide to develop it for which is constitutive for what life you will live. There were two concurrent schools, so to say: Athen and Sparta. Athen sponsored the Olympic Games while Sparta refused to participate. What you learn to win a competition is not relevant on the battlefield. This could have been said by a samurai in later centuries. In the Western culture this knowledge became a side stream when in Japan it was the main stream. The knowledge about how to learn and develop your personality by means of your body is now coming back to us Westerners by the Eastern so-called martial arts and health systems like Yoga. In our Center for Movement & Hedonism we try to offer interrelated but different ways based upon these traditions and ancient knowledge. We, Sabine and Thomas Christaller, started many years ago by learning Aikido. Therefore a main focus here is on Aikido.
