Never Defend

Josh Gold of Ikazuchi Dojo interviews André Cognard (8th dan) for Aikido Journal. Cognard Sensei talks about the technique and philosophy of his teacher, Hirokazu Kobayashi (1929-1998), a direct student of the founder of aikido, and coincidentally one of Haruo Matsuoka Sensei’s teachers for a short period of time at the beginning of his aikido journey. Kobayashi Sensei taught at what later became Tenshin Dojo in Osaka, Japan.
