This is a rare six-minute video clip of Seigo Yamaguchi, 8th dan. This particular demonstration took place in Tokyo in 1988. Yamaguchi Sensei presents an outstanding performance with numerous taijutsu and sword techniques.
Seigo Yamaguchi was one of the most important of the first generation of aikido instructors of the postwar era. He taught at the Aikikai Hombu Dojo in Tokyo for several decades until his passing in 1996. Having now become nearly a legend, Yamaguchi Sensei influenced several generations of practitioners within the Aikikai system during his career including many of today’s senior instructors of the Headquarters school.
It is by viewing such high-level aikido by great instructors such as Seigo Yamaguchi Sensei that today’s practitioners can pick up important hints to speed their own progress in the art.
