Shomen Uchi Shiho Nage (Cut Arm Twist)

Today we are switching to a side swing also known as “yokomen uchi” in aikido. We then blend with the circular motion of the attack (minding the blade) to a projection throw known as “Shiho nage” or four-direction throw in aikido. It is a fun one to practice and since the weapon is longer the timing and distance is different but we still have that flowing feeling of the entrance. Be well, all!
