It's interesting after reading an interview with Christian Tessier who said he basically debunks ki (on Aikido Journal??) and isn't Takeda Sensei his teacher???

Has anyone here trained with him and felt this?? Or is it just a show?

Just curious
What was that awful video showing. It was terrible. I mean really, I don't blame Christian Tessier for debunking ki or silly demonstrations like that video. It's one of the main reasons people don't take Aikido serious as a means of self defense. The video looks more like children rolling around on the floor. Clownish like stunts.
