The interesting part is - what is that switch - that reversal? What changes the phase, the polarity?
Listen to the video. With your ears ;
1st guy (on the right) pretends to apply Nikkyo to an almost straight arm, then flops himself onto the mat ... then ... amazingly ... SLAPS the mat, ages after he lands. What's that about?! Muppet.
These guys are the reason folk disparage Aikido as an ineffective MA : THESE GUYS!
This isn't good and it leads to all sorts of delusions and all of that gets right in the way of effective training.
(They should've let the tall guy start pushing, then crank on the straight armbar he's just delivered to them... but that's I'm sure another topic entirely.)
