DescriptionI am Ondrej Malina, I am now 5th Dan and a professional teacher with my own DoJo with over 200 members. The video (22) and photos (147) has been exclusively shot for this application. From 2005, I have also been acting as a stuntman in films such as Wanted starring Morgan Freeman, Angelina Jolie and James McAvoy.
Other films I have been in include Solomone Cane, Henry IV and Mission Impossible 4.
I started in 1987.
My first teachers were Stefan Stenudd, Georgio Veneri, Daniel Vaillant, and now I follow Franck Noel,
Joel Roche and Endo sensei including my original Teacher Stefan.
From 1993 until 2003 I was President of the Czech Aikido Federation.
From 2004 onwards, every year, I visit Japan to study the roots of Aikido.
I also run Demonstrations and Seminars in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland and France. With Aikido you have structure and yet freedom to express your own understanding of the Art. I hope you enjoy what we have created for you and look forward to helping you during your own journey.

This great app (600K 0.6MB, called 'A step to Aikido' once installed) allows you to download 147 great photos explaining 22 videos which show the moves in full swing.
Importantly it shows you in closeup (through the use of the zoom setting) where your hands should be move by move.
You can clearly see the position the body has to take as well. You can manually browse each move or set it to auto.
After watching each video each key point within the move is captured at the best angle possible so you can clearly see the progress of each move.
