That video seems to be a good start as far as things I would have liked to see from my aikido teachers. But the question is, when you look at his larger applied movement, where is it?

Youtube link: Seichiro Endo Shihan at 44th All Aikido demonstration
In this vid at 0:14 and 1.07. This is what I meant by not moving your body by doings footsteps...
Oh, I really like Endo Shihan. Just watching him has a soothing effect

In a real fight:
* If you make a bad decision, you die.
* If you don't decide anything, you die.
Aikido teaches you how to decide.
