Re: Aikido on National Geographic

In New Zealand this documentatry series came pretty soon after the Xtreme Martial Arts feature so it looked brilliant by comparison :-). The Aikido episode was good, I enjoyed it. Over all though I found the series to be a tad frustrating as a martial artist. I guess because it wasn't made for martial artists. So episodes were more about Josette's journey through the arts rather than the arts themselves. I would have loved to see more detail on the techniques of Caporeia, Kalariypayat, etc etc.
