Nagababa, indeed the series is about the method not AIkido itself (yet). The articles precisely point out the fact the kihon shown is uneffective.
May I suggest you ask P.Voarino direct on TAI? Best.
My point is that the kihon HE is presenting is also ineffective. He is proposing slight modification on the surface without even touching weak foundations where the principle of unbalancing is not applied correctly.
