Re: Multiple attackers, using their idea of what is happening against them

When I use the word "Aiki" I am describing an ability to understand your attackers mind, physically blend with their physical movement, and letting your attackers spell their own demise. When I saw this video clip, it was a great example of what I would describe as Aiki. Enjoy!

Talk about awareness and a calm mind in the face of real danger- awesome!
Very nice ! I do not know much about American football (what is a juke?) and hardly ever get to see it - but I liked this clip!

I think I would give "Aiki" a bit broader meaning, but it would include your definition. So for me too this it is an excellent example of Aiki!
