Kaeshi-waza - Aikido Knowledge Base - Aikido Glossary

back to knowledge base


Technique reversal. (Uke becomes Nage and vice-versa). This is usually a very advanced form of practice. Kaeshi Waza practice helps to instill a sensitivity to shifts in resistance or direction in the movements of one's partner. Training so as to anticipate and prevent the application of Kaeshi Waza against one's own techniques greatly sharpens Aikido skills.

Kaeshi Waza literally means “techniques of reaction or of response”. The Founder considered these techniques to be secret (Himitsu Waza), not to be shown in public and to be taught only to a few, very trusted students toward the end of their training life. This tradition, not only typical of Aikido, is derived from the fact that a Master, even if highly skilled, could run the risk of encountering an opponent of superior skill, or may encounter one of the most painful conditions: confronting one of his own deshi (students). This series of very special techniques represented the last chance to win and survive. Usually, Kaeshi Waza are applied when the opponent makes a mistake or if he hesitates and, if executed in a proper way, they do not allow a further reaction from Uke.

Aikido is a modern Japanese Martial Art and is very different from disciplines such as Karate, Kick Boxing, Taekwondo, Kung Fu, MMA, BJJ, Kempo and Krav Maga where there is emphasis on kicking, punching or wrestling.

Aikido is an extremely efficient self defence (also as Self-Defence Women London) system utilising balance-taking and posture-breaking movements to achieve joint locks, pins and throws. It contains elements of Ju Jitsu, Kendo, Judo and other budo.

Aikido Classes are held every Tuesday and Wednesday evening at our Harrow dojo, and Thursday evening at our Pinner dojo in NW London. Pinner Aikido Club London is a part of the Kai Shin Kai International Traditional Aikido Association (KSK), which is a member of the Aikido Alliance.

Aikido is essentially a non-violent Martial art system that encourages the avoidance of confrontation and harmony with an aggressor. The classes are well attended with Aikido students always on the mat and aimed at all levels, from beginner to advanced but everyone is welcome to come along regardless of fitness or experience.

Our Aikido students work at their own pace during the training sessions and no one is forced into doing anything they are not comfortable with.
Pinner Aikido Club in London can help you achieve self-defense skills, self-esteem, confidence, and fitness. Most of all though, our classes are fun.

You do not have to be competitive or naturally athletic to take part in the Aikido class. Learning Aikido is about self-improvement and self-confidence.

Regardless of your size, body type and current level of physical ability or disability. If you are looking for a healthier, more confident way of life, then the modern art of Aikido may well be for you.
