Renshinkai 7th Annual Demonstration
Aikido Renshinkai’s 7th annual demonstration was held at 13th Sep. in Tokyo.
The theme of the Demonstration this year was "Raku". It has various meanings enjoy, pleasure, delight, comfort etc. At Tsutomu Chida-Top Shihan' s demonstration, he played Waza with joyfully.
Also for me, it was impressive that David Fryberger-Sensei -of "Aikido on Ventura" in L.A.-'s Waza with beautiful form like Japanese Samurai.

In this video you can catch a glimpse of David Sensei training at Yoshinkan Honbu Dojo in 1994. He is seated in the middle of the front row of students. You can see some of his kihon dosa and he also serves as uke toward the end of the video.
