I bet he could knock you out, with a tennis bat, too!

This is good, cos it is something fantastic, that has actually been filmed?

Does this make Ueshiba's feats, seem more believable, or unbelievable???

Actually, the "lost footage" is actually part of a viral marketing campaign for the Nokia N96 "Bruce Lee" edition mobile phone that was on sale in China.. The video was created using a Bruce Lee look-a-like and Computer Graphics (like the ping-pong scenes in "Forrest Gump").

Bwuce and the numb chucks! A classic in the annals of martial arts.

Incredible. He doesn't turn round and show his face. But, there is a video of him lighting a match with one.

To keep aiming a ball, with a rounded surface like a bat, time after time, would be incredible.

But, there is video of him moving very fast and I have seen a 64 year old who could move with a flicker.

It says on wiki, that he was filmed doing some fast things. Maybe not time after time.

Actually, I think it's bad to release fakes like this, though every skilled fighter I have known has used a little bit of shownmanship and intimidation, to some small or very large extent.

Do Aikidoists just do it by invoking Ueshiba?

Also, the lighting matches one was a fake, too. It doesn't even look like him and it's modern film.

There's a a sucker born very minute!
