Aikido, the way of harmony, is a beautiful martial art to watch. When demonstrated by expert practitioners the
movements are fluid, graceful and apparently effortless. The video clips presented here have been carefully created to
demonstrate these characteristics for a number of commonly practiced Aikido techniques. The unique sketched format of
the clips was deliberately chosen to emphasize the techniques rather than the demonstrators.
The unique format of this product, the combination of text, images and controllable video clips, was designed to provide the optimum medium for appreciating and understanding the performance of a range of Aikido techniques.
For each technique there are two video clips showing two different attacking directions, a complete description of the technique including key points, and a number of still images to supplement and clarify the text descriptions. You can swap between text and video with a single tap/click and you can also swap between the two video clips, which have been carefully synchronized. Video clip controls allow you to single step backwards and forwards through the clip, play it in slow motion and make it loop continuously.
