Re: Gozo Shioda and JFK's Bodyguard

Apologies for ressurecting an old thread, but. . .

This video (in two parts) has got to be one of the funniest things I've ever seen done on aikido, and it includes some of the famed Kennedy bodyguard footage:

It's a Japanese TV program on Gozo Shioda. Some very nice footage of the late master - but watch also for a highly amusing O-Sensei impersonation. Also, you get to see aikido done to Beat Takeshi (Inoue-sensei and Yasuhisa Shioda-sensei visit his TV show)! Doesn't get much better than this . . .
