Re: Seiseki Abe Sensei video....whats going on here?

Rupert and Dan are 100% correct. I would even go further: junk is junk and that was, indeed, junk. A lot of people, Abe-sensei excluded, lose the martial aspect of aikido. This video does nothing to further our studies of the art, nor does it lend credibility to aikido. A sad display indeed, especially for someone who has been living in Japan and training in aikido as long as I have.
