Re: Poll: How aesthetically pleasing is your instructor's aikido?

Ah! This question is fun.

The first night I watched John Messores Sensei I had a dislocated shoulder and a bag of ice for company. He never touched uke and yet uke went flying. I knew this was no WWF stuff, he had drawn uke out and been in his space perfectly. I knew I had to at least try to learn this.

The associate professors each have their own aesthetic - and the guy with the toughest look on his face does the most beautiful and gentle Ushiro Waza.
