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

I'll immediately admit a completely shallow understanding of Nishio Sensei's marvelous technique (though many thanks for posting this one!), and as such this will simply reflect where my head's at at the moment, but it reminded me somehow of this clip of Chiba Sensei:

Something about the wonderful intent of the attack, making the needed response not just "in the moment", but "in the instant", or perhaps more accurately, "before the instant", "leading up to the instant".
