Dennis Hooker Zanshin and Ma-ai in Aikido
5/22/14 It is with a sad heart that I've learned of Hooker Sensei's passing. My deepest condolences to Connie, his children, and members of his dojo. I was honored to know him and will miss him. Shari Dyer
Dennis Hooker Sensei, 6th Degree Black Belt (now 7th) and Chief Instructor of Shindai Dojo, Orlando Florida, addresses the basic principals of connection, timing and spacial relationships in Aikido. Using emply hand techniques and well as use of the short staff and sword to illustrate these concepts, Hooker Sensei teaches with wonderful clarity and purpose. His teaching will stay with the student long after watching this seminar.
Credit correction: Principal Uke is Tim Magill, not Tim Magee. Our sincere apologies go to Mr. Magill for the spelling mistake.

Hooker Sensei does a wonderful job in the DVD of explaining, clearly and in depth, the concepts of ma-ai (correct distance) and zanshin (continuous mind) in Aikido. For those of you in Aikido who think you are completely familiar with these concepts, please take a second look. You won't regret it. For everyone else in the martial arts and in general, I think you will find this DVD will surprise and interest you.
