This is how we practice for Tanto Randori competition at the Mansfield Tomiki Aikido Club. The idea is to try to get a successful technique from an uncooperative attack.

In tanto randori, there is a designated attacker (tanto) and a designated defender (toshu). The attacker attempts to stab the defender with a training knife (usually rubber or stuffed) while the defender attempts, with any of seventeen basic aikido techniques, to throw or perform joint-locks on the attacker. Tanto is expected to resist or counter with the first five techniques.

Hope you enjoy!
