Re: YouTube: Shoji Nishio (and Yashuhiko Takemori, around 1986)

It is a nice collection of footage of Nishio sensei, but I think it is difficult to understand what his aikido was about from this video if you have not already trained in this particular way. Learning from a video is always difficult but maybe even more in this situation.

However at 4.24 and 5.15 (approx) I think you get a quick glimpse of the relaxed speed and precision that was so amazing about Nishio sensei.
