So are there any tapes that you would recommend shihonage?
I'm not in any kind of position to recommend, but I do like the tape "Path Beyond Thought" from www.stevenseagal.com
True, it suffers from the same "a mishmash of cuts put together" syndrome, but in overall it's unique because the Aikido shown is always energetic...and somehow... frank.
Also I like the "Rendezvous with adventure" tape, which shows O'Sensei's dojo and the most interesting encounter of a significantly larger man sincerely trying to put one of his top students down (a part of that clip used to be available on www.aikidojournal.com
