Small effective movement. The Aikido taught in the 1950s by Kenshiro Abbe Sensei was very tight and short movement such as this, he was a high ranking Judoka, I found that most of the early Aikido teachers I trained with had initially studied Judo - Kenshiro Abbe - Tadashi Abe - Masahilo Nakazono - TK Chiba - I often read where people say " there is no kicking and punching in Aikido " - in those early days, they all taught to kick and punch, as I still do.

My Sensei called it Telephone Booth Aikido. This was back in the day when there were telephone booths.

https://dontmakemeangrymrmcgee.wordpress.com/2015/06/23/small-circle-aikido-for-self-defence/I think this illustrates some strategic points about unplanned encounters:

1) Surprise is effective
2) Surprise is enhanced by not reciprocating initial aggression
3) A surprised aggressor has poor ukemi
4) An unanticipated fall is psychologically debilitating
5) Unprepared ukemi likely ends up with the head striking the ground, and is physically disorienting.

6) A relatively calm demeanor throughout the encounter makes the assailant/target (can't really apply "victim" in this case) relationship abundantly clear, which will be very handy when the police are interviewing witnesses and deciding what to do with you.

Throughout the video, tori seems to be setting up their positions for this throw (he had to get enough space). Nicely done!

I wonder it this was staged. Uke's leg goes up at the end, with the bent knee sticking up. It's just like we are taught to do in Iwama-style aikido.
