Aikido instruction: jo suburi 1thru 20
This video shows the 20 jo suburi. The exercises are executed by Lewis Bernaldo de Quiros (rokudan), chief instructor of TAKN.
This is an instructional video made by Takemusu Aikido Kyokai Nederland. TAKN chief instructor, Lewis Bernaldo de Quiros (rokudan) was a permanent soto deshi in Iwama under Morihiro Saito shihan from 1986 until 1993.
The purpose of this video is to support the training of TAKN students and their preparation for tests. It is not meant to replace instruction by a teacher.

Official press release:
World's End Girlfriend is a Japanese composer whose work blends complex sound structures with beautiful melodies, reaching from electronic glitch to jazz-infused rock to modern classical. Captivating, enthralling and like nothing you've heard before, WEG makes for a surprising yet central addition to London contemporary music label Erased Tapes.
His brand new album 'SEVEN IDIOTS' will finally be released outside of Japan this April. Shifting seamlessly from catchy pop hooks to elaborate orchestrations and brutal IDM drones, it's an irregular pop album -- filled with twists and turns that will have you reaching for the repeat button. At first recorded with vocals, he took the unusual composing method of building up the songs before erasing all of their vocal parts. By dismantling and re-constructing each track, WEG has produced a genre-defying album that truly transcends categorisation.
World's End Girlfriend hails from Nagasaki Kyushu, Japan and currently resides in Tokyo. Fascinated by his father's classical music collection, he began his foray into sound at the tender age of 10, creating his early compositions on keyboard, guitar, tape recorders and computers. To date he has composed more than 600 songs, for the most part unreleased testaments of his early experimentations.
WEG first came on Europe's radar in 2002, invited to perform at Barcelona's renowned Sonar Festival. On the back of the collaborative album 'Palmless Prayer / Mass Murder Refrain' with Japanese post-rock band Mono, he embarked on extensive tours in Europe and North America in 2005, returning for an appearance at ATP Festival in 2008. Recently performing as a seven-piece ensemble, WEG's ostentious live show is currently selling out 800 capacity venues in Asia. Filmmakers seem smitten too, with the Go Shibata directed movie 'Late Bloomer' (2004) and the internationally renowned 'Air Doll' (2009) by award-winning director Hirokazu Koreeda both featuring soundtracks created by World's End Girlfriend.
The music video for 'Les Enfants du Paradis', taken from 'SEVEN IDIOTS', has already received over 90.000 views on YouTube. Directed by Yohei Saito, this beguiling visual represents the high level of interest given to WEG's music, not widely available outside of Asia -- until now.

Volando 3D y no es un giant, ay virgen! De todas maneras esas maniobras son dificiles de hacer en cualquier avion. Adivinen quien lo vuela?
I love this show and can't wait until new episodes start airing in October!! While other shows are formulaic, abc gives us a lawyer prophet (awesome!).
I chose Zero no tsukaima and Shakugan no shana because these are my favourite anime and i think saitoxlouise and shanaxyuki are the best couples.
You're way too beautiful girl
That's why it'll never work
You'll have me suicidal, suicidal
When you say it's over
Damn all these beautiful girls
They only wanna do your dirt
They'll have you suicidal, suicidal
When they say it's over
See it started at the park
Used to chill after dark
Oh when you took my heart
That's when we fell apart
Cause we both thought
That love lasts forever (lasts forever)
They say we're too young
To get ourselves sprung
Oh we didn't care
We made it very clear
And they also said
That we couldn't last together (last together)
See it's very divine,
you;re one of a kind
But you mash up my mind
You often get declined
My baby is driving me crazy
It was back in '99
Watchin' movies all the time
Oh when I went away
For doin' my first crime
And I never thought
That we was gonna see each other (see each other)
And then I came out
Mami moved me down South
Oh I'm with my girl
Who I thought was my world
It came out to be
That she wasn't the girl for me (girl for me)
[Repeat Refrain and Chorus]
Now we're fussin'
And now we're fightin'
Please tell me why
I'm feelin' slighted
And I don't know
How to make it better (make it better)
You're datin' other guys
You're tellin' me lies
Oh I couldn't believe
What I'm seein' with my eyes
I'm losin' my mind
And I don't think it's clever (think it's clever)
You're way too beautiful girl
That's why it'll never work
You'll have me suicidal, suicidal, suicidal...
