Re: Crazy Ki demonstration by Barrish Sensei
For what its worth - when he's in Japan one of his students plays with us.
If the student is a reflection of his teacher than perhaps his methods require a second look - the student is pretty good.
In the aiki arts - "stylized reactions" are as common as our own denial. Holding on when you would normally let go, resisting in defined ways, not resisting in others. Take your pick.
