Re: YouTube: Morihei Ueshiba - Rare Aikido Demonstration (1957)

I love the old black and white films. I'm always struck by just how small O Sensei was, even by Japanese standards. He looks maybe 5' - 5'1'', 130lbs. at the most, but still fast a fish. Not too bad for an old man Proof positive that technique can overcome strength and power, when applied properly. Does anyone know the location? Are they on top of a particular dojo, or just a random building on a nice sunny day. Thanks for the post.
