I would simply say that all of the really interesting stuff out there is the stuff you don't understand. I have so may friends who form all sorts of opinions about styles and teachers with whom they have absolutely no direct experience. Most of them have stopped getting any better. They are stuck because their seeking is restricted by their understanding. As far as I am concerned, the least interesting stuff to work on is what is already understood. I think folks should work more outside their comfort levels.
Thank you Sensei Ledyard, to emphasize such an important aspect in our (all of us) aikido training. In my opinion, that's really a shortcut (or possibly the only road) in the DO to higher knowledge.

That is why I only mentioned the Watanabe Sensei's demo and didn't give any opinion, simply because of that: just didn't understand.

I understand a little bit more now. Hehe.

Thank you all for enlightening me.
