Here is an Aikido video of T.K. Chiba (currently 8th dan) teaching at a seminar in 1986.

Can anyone identify his uke? Or, where this video was taken?

And, what are your thoughts on this video?

Thank you for sharing. The teaching is never too old even it was made in 1986.

Dear All,
I have hours and hours of Chiba Sensei video .I never tire of watching them. Chiba Sensei inspired so many people all over the word. Great teacher , very charismatic and at times can be very humorous.As for Sylvain Sensei sad to say he was killed in a tragic car accident.Quality of video not too good.Great video nevertheless. Sensei certainly does some great waza .Loved the kokyu ho tachi waza stuff.I think I saw Lorraine Diane Sensei in the vid. If by chance you see the vid, Lorraine, hope you are well, Cheers, Joe.
