Re: Nice Video...

Without specifics stating very poor technique is meaningless. Also, I cannot comment on the weapons-they were different.

Toribio sensei is an accomplished martial artist and although the Aiki-Expo may not be a benchmark I have seen him personally and he is a very good teacher. It was one exposure. Also, some styles of aikido do not always operate the same way. The balance criticisms although valid may be due to stylistic differences. Even though balance may be restored momentarily or appear so the energy flow may make it a difficult for the uke to counter.
