I rather think that most of the time, we feel a precarious peace in certain particular conditions. It develops in you the breathing, once we breathe tsura, we are more relaxed. Modern society created that difference, it has created the teenage which by the way teenage is now up to forty itsyothe third and then the fourth age, and so on.

Itsuo Tsuda told us: The practice of katsugen undo allows you to practice Aikido in this way, it is for me a base, the basic.

Then, of course, it makes a difference, if I work with a six year old child it is not like when I work with a sixty years old person or somebody on their twenties. This atypical gsuda, fiercely independent, considered himself first and foremost a philosopher and he is a key figure of the Aikido in France. That was what shocked me.

At that point you feel free, extremely free. The movement, after reaching a marked level of intensity, gradually becomes calmer. One can be tired in the evening, people after working hours are stressed.

If it follows the internal circuits of the stomach and arms, the inside of the body, then it becomes yin, otherwise its expression will be yang.

What is Regenerating Movement?

Raising the arms unifying with heaven yin and down in harmony with the earth yangit was this kind of work, the visualization that I started with my master and I still continue after forty years. Then with irimi nage we end up with a yang movement that will cause in him the desire to fall in order to avoid the worst.

It is rather a complementary. Our body is in between others with an external surface: The author writes in a direct and simple style; his choice of words, precise and never left ittsuo chance, and so it has great significance and the reader is captured by the rhythm of a respiration.


During this workshop I saw my teacher, who was an actual budoka, attacking him with determination and at any time Tsuda was not there, he was dodging, he had created void in front of him. This is called chinkon kishin, soothing the soul and return to God. What struck me at first was his ability to dodge.

The technique is there to allow through its precision to find the lines that help us breathing better, to get better into the fusion. This norito is very popular in Japan, it is called Misogi no harae.

Norito resonance – Itsuo Tsuda School

If we try to raise them using the yang the shoulders will contract, if we try to push the earth with the yin we will remain stuck in the middle of the movement. If we break down a movement like ryo te dori ten chi nage in the omote form, uke comes up with a yang force.

A natural condition has been reached. Itsuo Tsuda recited it daily during the last few years and the tradition is still kept within the Itsuo Tsuda School.

Fluently bilingual, he has always preferred French for his explanations, and particularly in his books he wrote in one go, almost without correction. Simply the realization of being. Nevertheless in the West the general trend is to perceive it as black and white; they are opposed to each other, divided between light and dark, categorised as positive and negative, like at school or even with sexist references.

The body spheres Our body is in between others with an external surface: In fact, martial arts were born at the time when the human being was continuously exposed to fatality, without notice. The technique also means the body, the posture.

Meeting the breathing.

For me, when we talk about life within us we are all equal. In Aikido we let the ki arise from Seika Tanden, the hara 3rd point in the belly in Seitaiand its tendency is yang because it results from the strength that comes from the back, force that is not expressed in the shoulders, as we see too often, but naturally thanks to the koshi.

When this fusion widens our spirit, we reach the state of non-body and non-mentallity. The focus is on breathing, by following the inhale, then the exhale, you move focusing on the inner feeling, you can work on this kind of exercises with a partner, closing your eyes and remaining focused on the center. A new perspective is created as our aptitude develops for that melding or fusion of sensitivity which affects human relationships and our reactions to life around us.


This proverb is almost unknown today. The Yang surfaces push, sustained by the internal yin, become strong, standing side by side, rejecting and sliding against each other. It makes no sense. Allowing a conscious circulation of ki, improving our perception of this movement, of this sphere of energy that many speak about but only a few can perceive so clearly, this is how I intend my current work. In Shinto, there is no opposition between God and human being as in Christianity.

As those needs vary from one individual to another, and for the same individual from one moment to another, there can be no uniform, pre-programmed movement. The ki attached to our person gets purified to keep us alive, but at the same otsuo exposes us to constant agitations.

And only now I see Aikido as a process of normalization of the body as well. And what is grey? For this the awareness about tisuo, as an expression of the yang-yin, is in my opinion essential. Philosophically we talk extensively on one or the other, but we forget the itsho Chinese thinkers: In Aikido this fusion ituo feelings between people allows you to practice in another way.

Want to receive future articles? O-Sensei Ueshiba gave a lot of importance to these exercises that meant to him something completely different then warming up. The voice of Itsuo Tsuda, who died instill resonates today through the nine books published in French and through his students.

The wall that was blocking us, which resulted in a stiff or uncertain technique, and therefore artificial, completely unrealistic, it has dropped.
