This is going to be sooo interesting. Yes.. I was a bit put of by the long distance bokken techniques in the video, but this type of hyper sensibility between Uke and Nage can be the result from training very intensely for many years. No doubt the man has very soft but extremely well timed and powerful technique.
Of course, and it's a common training paradigm in Aikido. I do have my doubts as to how well conditioning yourself for exaggerated reactivity really works for most people in the long run, not to mention that it encourages demonstrations that makes us look like idiots.

Best,

Chris
