I saw an awesome video clip of martial mobility, keen awareness and quick thinking. Although not necessarily Aikido, there is a lot that can be learned from this video. If you closely analysis, you see a beautiful, tactically executed arm lock. Not an over bearing muscle driven effort. Simply a fantastic execution of clean technique to mobilize the opponent.

If you can get away from the fact that this is a sport event, cage competition and look at the purity of the technique executed. We can gain valuable lessons. We Aikidoka can learn so much from moving with precession, much like the guy in this video. I would love to hear your opinions.

Do you mean precision?

I disagree with either word anyway, to my eyes
Ishida was gifted the armbar by Wilcox turning unnecessarily from the sit-down (which looked cool but...) into the armbar and then ignoring Ishida's leg round his head. Maybe he was overconfident or something, but the armbar went on quickly after that. There was no real need to spin over like that, not real need to leave his arm in a good position to lock it.

It looked kinda fake to me, maybe set up some how. Because if you look, the ref was RIGHT in the way of the camera at the moment of the arm-bar, and the japanese guy didnt even have the arm tight when the white guy was tapping. It just didnt make sense. you have to have proper extension of the arm for it to be tight enough for you to need to tap, and it just didnt look like he had it.

BUT.

With-holding those opinions of mine, the arm-bar WAS nicely executed, i agree.

I guess good practice can help in perfecting this awesome technique.
