Re: quickness & accuracy

Regarding the film:

I think Aikido technique would come through in the shoes of either of those guys.

I don't know if the issue of training against "those types" of attacks is the issue here--I don't know either way. I view the main problem in that altercation to be a total lack of balance of both participants which result in both having a lack of mobility and a lack of power behind the attacks.

To me, we do train against those attacks--hay-makers=side strikes. Further, I see a category within Aikido for all the attacks that were launched in that situation.

Just my thoughts.

By the way, very nice film. One of the first ones that I've seen that look somewhat like serious fights I've seen.
