Re: Aikido vs. Kickboxing (video)
Yeah, the video was OK, but as other posters observed...it was just a demo. You can't suspend your disbelief too long. I do have training in Shotokan and I do know how to kick, and I wouldn't have attacked like that.
However, that was the point of the demo: to prove that some of the techniques of Aikido can counter frontal and side kicks, perhaps also roundhouse...but no too sure about low kicks, especially to the knees.
