Re: Best karate style for aikido?
gotta admit, I was expecting to barf, but hey, that was pretty good. I'd really hate to fight that guy. I like how he applauded the student at the end when the student got something right. Not my chosen path, but dude was balanced, smooth, fast, powerfull. And some of the tai sabaki was surprisingly familiar.
I am not into the Kyokushin family of full-contact karate styles, but I must say Ashihara demonstrations look pretty cool. Especially when Yuka Kobayashi is doing them. :-)
