aikido moves

This student of Seiseki Abe and former chief instructor at Steven Seagal’s dojo will be the cover story for the June/July 2014 issue of Black Belt. Watch his elegant aikido moves in this NEW exclusive behind-the-scenes video!

The June/July 2014 issue of Black Belt magazine will feature a cover story on aikido's Haruo Matsuoka, a student of Seiseki Abe and the former chief instructor at Steven Seagal's Tenshin Dojo. In the story, titled "Synergy, Strength & Simplicity," Haruo Matsuoka is shown executing a number of empty-hand aikido moves, as well as aikido moves for defense against weapons, in a profile wherein he discusses what makes aikido applicable for everybody as a traditional design for modern living. Still photos, however, don't do his elegant yet powerful aikido moves justice. So we proudly present this bonus video of Haruo Matsuoka's aikido moves in action from that shoot — along with a breakdown of the feature stories for the June/July 2014 issue!
