Motion Capture

Browsing through YouTube I came across some interesting videos taken from motion capture, each one shows Aikido from a different aspect.

The first video shows the trails left by the wrist and the centre of gravity of nage when performing Irimi Nage.

Ghosting of the bokken when performing kotegaeshi, sort of mouse trails left behind the movement.

Here we can see different aspects of Nage's body, Uke is made to disappear and the camera is focused on Nage's pelvis whilst doing Katadori Iriminage.

This video shows the speed of various parts of the body using different colours, the limbs are usually the fastest moving parts of the body which are coloured red when they reach a high velocity.

Hmmmm gravity waves? Not really quite sure what this is all about, but it looks good. It seems to be something to do with trying to visualise the momentum of the the pelvis of the aikido practitioners.

Osensei Quotes

When an opponent comes forward, move in and greet him; if he wants to pull back, send him on his way.
