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

We're currently working on a two- and three-attacker taigi (set series of throws) and the sight of two black-belts in hakama taking symmetrical, unison forward rolls is visually very appealing.

When us white belts try it, the result is more appealing to the sense of comedy.... The three-attacker one has a definite Three Stooges quality as we try to sort out which two of us have nage's arm and which one has his shoulders from behin--and run into each other trying to get into our places.
