Re: Woman's Knife vs. Multiple Attack
It is Tai Chi Chuan and Ba qua. It is Kalijin. I have practiced many styles over the last 45 years. I started with Judo.
As for it being complimentary, yes, I am a great admirer of Aikido's founder. In his 40's he was still manhandling his opponents. I was struck by pictures showing his muscularity. But, by the time he was in his fifties he had already made the transition to "internal methods".
