Re: Crazy Ki demonstration by Barrish Sensei

I have to agree with Dr. Riggs but I will say that I liked his (Barrish Sensei's) movement. It was natural, smooth and extremely well done. It looked like he has done those a million times. I personally enjoy the physicality of Aikido but if you practice with that way regularly, I can see how both nage and uke could get some proficiency at it. It looks cool but stretches what can be reasonably expected from normal folks who aren't shinto priests. I think any comments from our MMA and BJJ regulars won't be as measured and subdued as the first two you have just received. Better get your fire gear on.
Thanks for sharing the video.
