A More complete version here
Thanks, Dan! I love this guy! He seems to exemplify the essence of what I like about budo practice. A lot of those movements, while obviously done with a far superior understanding (in more than a few ways I'm sure), are very similar to my own solo workouts. It's inspiring to see what dedicated practice looks like instead of my own hap-hazard BS.
All the stuff he's talking about are the things that attracted and presently keep me looking to Aikido. I'm thinking, "he's describing various aspects of misogi," and then as if to punctuate this, he goes and jumps in an icy river. Love it.
Take care,
