Video: Partnership & Transformation

In aikido partner practice, a pair of partners takes turns playing the roles of nage (the person who throws or pins an attacker) and uke (the person who provides an attack for the nage to work with).

In this video, we explore the complementary roles of nage and uke, how they work together, and how to do each one well.

Video directed, filmed, and edited by Steve Tomich Sensei. Featuring Nick Walker Sensei, Azzia Walker Sensei, and Joy Reichart Sensei.
