Completely agree with you David, but performance technick from this point of view demands very high level (which we don't possess, while) since all this can will end with a trauma. Here, the main thing in my opinion not only to show realistic Aikido, but also to remain after that alive and healthy! It is wonderful, that after this demonstration any Uke's has not suffered, for what we are grateful to our instructor
