Re: Dance of the gods, but to what music?

I think swing music might be the closest I can think of. The Tohei hop looks kinda swing-like. Swing can be either very graceful of very powerful and always a bit o' both. Here's some awesomeness to dig on! Talk about needing a good uke! Note the mini furi tama in the beginning and the koshinage not far after (there's even some ground work demo-ed)
Now wish me luck! I'm on the hunt for matsutake mushrooms in the Cascades!
That's by far the most enjoyable video I've ever watched on aikiweb!!!!!
Now, which one is uke?
