AIKIDO TECHNICAL TIPS
AIKIDO EXERCISES

Sayo Undo

Sayo Undo exercise has been described technically as a lateral swing. It's practice has an emphasis in the shifting of balance from the one-point or center and by bending the knees and using the hips for power and momentum.

Sometimes sayo-undo is referred to as an entering exercise used in techniques such as kokyunage, because of the it's nearly linear entrance at the start of the technique.

Morihiro Saito, Shihan and world reknown for his superior technical Aikido expertise, has pointed out that sayo-undo is used in Kokyuho execution.
