This video is imo garbage.The guy with the hakama against low ranked opponents does not use any skills in aikido/judo or karate.He struggles against the opposition.His posture is all over the place.Words fail me for once.Cheers, Joe.
I would have to agree. My training partners and I have trained aikido under much heavier levels of resistance and also with the objective of countering the other's technique.
This teaches you how difficult it is to "do" aikido, and can help you understand what aikido actually is.
And no. I'm not referring to applying technique. That's relatively easy.
