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!
A "juke" is an American slang word used in sports to describe a situation where the ball carrier fools the defender and makes them belive they are going a direction that they acutually are not.

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!

I agree that there is more to Aiki than one sees in this video, but what a neat example of an "aiki" moment, done under full resistance!
