Re: Aikido "Action Cut" Video with Matsuoka Sensei

IMHO, it is easy to criticize anything from a spectator position, especially if you don't have personal experience with that individual. I often think that Aikido is not a spectator sport in that you have great difficulty seeing the effectiveness that can only be felt. This has been my experience with many internal of Aiki art.

It is very courageous to put yourself out there for public opinion.

Having personally experienced Matsuoka Sensei, I hold his technique, his teaching, and his video as excellent.
