VIDEO FROM MONADNOCK AIKIKAI
HANMI-HANDACHI
Like Suwari-waza, handmi-handachi techniques are executed from a seated position, but in this case only nage is seated; uke attacks from a standing position. Hanmi-handachi provides a less-mobile, and more vulnerable perspective for the study of basic aikido techniques. This clip is from Amy's 1st kyu exam. Tom provides ukemi.
