“The Way of Divine Harmony”
The aikido Mr. Lowry teaches contains, just as Mr. Tomiki envisioned, a series of kata as well as the practice of randori (although, unlike common Tomiki-ryu schools, the Kaze Uta Budo Kai approach pursues a non-competitive form of randori). As with judo, randori serves as a method of applying principles learned by repetition of kata.
Additionally, we consider not just the skills and abilities of our students, but also the contributions of strong budo leaders and teachers when awarding rank.
