Re: YouTube: Tomiki Aikido training system demo

For those interested in Tomiki Aikido sponsered by NPO JAA (Japan Aikido Association)

This demo was recorded during 2007 "The highest aikido competition by the 16 best players" in Japan.
Kondo sensei (Daito Ryu), Inoue sensei (Yoshinkan) and others were guests during this competition.

Nice vid Eddy, thanks.

question: in the second group that comes out and demos the paired exercises and techniques, any idea who the guy on the far right, facing the camera is? If you watch, he'll stand out as the one who consistently exhales and relaxes DOWN before each technique. Is he anyone of note in the system or just someone who ended up in the demo? I haven't seen the entire thing yet, but he stands out in his group and IMO has something the others lack.
