Aikido challenges today

It is an offshoot from "Tohei throwing judoka" thread...

There are quite many descriptions of "old" aikido masters (including O'Sensei) taking different challenges and succeeding in them. Most of them fall into the before 50's era and there are mostly written descriptions and "supposedtobe" films.

Could someone gather info on films that are actually widespread and remained?

That was question one.

Secondly - nowadays why noone does it? I would love to see a less-than-10-year old videoclip of some Aikidoka taking on 5 (even one would be a start) professional judoka/boxer/whatever "sport" stylist.

But I've never heard of it. At least nothing that is supported by proper evidence.

Why?
