Re: Nice Video...

I wasn't sure if it was Toribio sensei-glad for the clarification. It looked a little like him due to the moustache and his lack of hair. There were a couple of points where he moved a little like him but the randori did not look like him. Thanks for the clairification.

The ukemi was overplayed but sometimes you get real light ukes and they do fly when a technique is done fully. If you watch Seagal's Path Beyond Thought, some of his ukes were over rotated as well althought I don't recall them landing face down.

With modern editing capabilities, we should start seeing better quality and presentation on such videos. This can only be good.
