I really liked this demo. Endo looked soft and powerful. Good ukemi too. At 5:52 the camera turns to some audience members, not sure why or who they were.

I agree about "good" ukemi in the sense that ukes gave a lot of pure gifts. Overall though my reaction is kinda of the opposite, neither soft nor powerful. Pretty much sloppy and disengaged is my reaction to it. Kinda sleep walking through it. Not my cup of tea, I guess.

Good timing, maai, and center. A rarity these days.

shihan Endo is one of my favorite master that I wish one day I would be able to attend one of his seminar around San Francisco. His technique is quite influence my practice as well. Great demo.

Endo sensei is quite a mystery to me. He is one of my favorite Aikido people. His timing is amazing and he is so relaxed and smooth he seems to not be of this world.
Would love to attend his seminars.
