The great masters: Nobuyuki Watanabe Sensei (Part 2)

Nobuyuki Watanabe is something different than any other Senseis you know and it seems like he refuses to apply force when making a technique.

They say that he makes Kokyu throws without a touch, that his Aikido is contactless. There’s even an opinion that Aiki principles are taking over the self-defense aspect of the Watanabe’s Aikido.

You can call him a total fake but he has been a senior instructor at the Hombu Dojo for years and does have an 8th Dan Aikido Aikikai. By the way, the name of his profession is chiropractic.

Not sure who was first a chicken or an egg but there’s a straight line between his Aikido style and a profession.

Nobuyuki Watanabe traveled a lot with his Aikido. He is well known around the world and is loved in some particular countries like Germany, Russia, New Zealand and others.
