against common street attacks where the attacker is unaware of the Aikido trained target
sorry to be negative Phil, but the attacks were very obviously pre-arranged by the two participants. My guess is they also probably did several takes as well until they got them looking the way they wanted.
Just because it is outside and the speed and dynamic movement (power) has increased over what we normally do in the dojo, does not make it any more realistic.
We perceive that, but it is not what I have/do experience in reality.
