NGAExperience® Nihon Goshin Aikido

This Week In Nihon Goshin Aikido ~ #2

March 3,2014

Dear Nihon Goshin Aikido Aficionado:

New Content Added This Week:

1)  An interview with the largest NGA dojo operator in Lexington, SC ~ John Carter

2)  An article which considers a true story about an aikido sho-dan who stepped in to rescue someone who was getting beaten up by multiple attackers). It did not wind up well for the would be 'hero' ~ but it leads us to a logical mental exercise: "What are we willing to risk to potentially save the life of another?"

3)  Expanded discussions of Applications and Classical Techniques ~ complete with embedded videos and comment boxes

4) The posting of some vintage photos from the August 1974 issue of "Masters of Self Defense" magazine featuring on the cover Shihan Bowe performing a particularly nasty looking Scoop Against the Kick on a very fit Jose Garrido.

Coming next week:

1)  An article on randori training.

2)  Vintage pictures of Mr. Weber employing an arsenal of arm bars on his son (who was serving as uke).

Going forward:  if you like the content of the website, and the idea of increasing the awareness and popularity of Nihon Goshin Aikido, please encourage your friends and training partners to subscribe for the free weekly updates on our subscriber page:

Nihon Goshin Aikido can not grow unless the art is disseminated widely and discussed thoroughly.  We look forward to your help in growing our great art.

Also, feel free to submit your articles and videos for publication to the website.  We'd also like to begin publishing promotions across associations.....  So let us know, and we will gladly publish them.

Let's meet together on the mat soon,
