Soft Movements and Unbalancing

Master the Essence of Aikido - Soft Movements and Unbalancing

Discover the secrets to improvement taught by a leading instructor acclaimed worldwide by enthusiasts. Aikido techniques that are circular, graceful, and powerful without force, captivate observers effortlessly.
