Here's a video clip of Christian Tissier (7th dan) teaching in Dartford, UK in 2012.
What are your thoughts on this video?
There are some differences between what he is doing and the style I practice but I enjoy watching his videos very much.
I cannot help loving the grace and relaxed effectiveness of his aikido. He possess a sense of timing and an ability to look competent and in control without ever being threatening or aggressive which I find is a key element in the type of Aikido I am pursuing.
As an example of a person who embodies Aikido in a good way and who can be studied via YouTube - II tend to push my students towards Tissier rather than Seagal. They both have a talent for creating a persona - but I can much better relate to the persona (and Aikido style) of Tissier.
One more thing: next time he comes to UK - please let me know :)

Tissier Sensei is like a conductor, expertly guiding the performance of some of the best ukemi in the world.
