Re: Aikido "Action Cut" Video with Matsuoka Sensei
I agree that this was very well shot, it drew the viewer in very well, and it covered some of the orthodoxes among the various flavours of Aikido.
Whilst there were some technical areas I thought were a little glossed, overall it presented very well and credibly.
I disagree that this kind of video denigrates any idea of budo because the very nature of the medium dictates a degree of latitude, both from the creator and the viewer.
A bit of appreciation for the work, effort and talent that went into the production. I enjoyed the clip.
