Re: YouTube: Morihei Ueshiba - Rare Aikido Demonstration (1957)
Good illustration of O Sensei demonstrating Aikido principles via technique. Leading, blending and evading, used to take uke's balance, are all plainly evident. Also easily seen is the almost total absence of the need for overt control of uke thanks to excellent timing, positioning and the maintenance of proper distance throughout the entire encounter. Too bad there's no translation of what he was saying.
