Major congrats! You did very nice research, in fact, you are very close to the Reality

For Szczepan, so fond of quoting O Sensei, something O Sensei was reportedly fond of saying "never to criticize other martial artists".

As for the video, it was a demo.
I don't criticize OTHER martial arts. I don't like this 'aikido' demo. What we see it is not martial art There isn't even ONE element that can qualifie the demo as martial art.
