Aikido Kumitachi - Partnered Bokken Techniques

This section looks at Aikido Kumitachi or Aikido's partnered bokken techniques. Kumitachi requires two students who practice a variety of offensive and defensive bokken techniques in formalized movements (sort of like mini partnered bokken katas or bokken versions of one-step sparring). According to Wikipedia, "kumitachi teach students how to alternately control the center line and move off it to avoid attacks and how to blend with an opponent's attacks, among other skills".

Martial Arts Books - Aikido Bokken Techniques

Some Aikido schools practice 5 separate kumitachi techniques whereas other schools can have 15 or more. For solo bokken practice, Aikido students often use Aikido Ken Suburi. Bokken are wooden swords primarily used for martial arts weapons training. They are used in Japanese martial arts such as Kendo, Kenjutsu, Ninjutsu and Aikido.
