Re: YouTube: Aikido Highlight - Shirakawa Ryuji

And maybe this should be another thread, but when I see demos where the time between the start and finish are too long, my BS klaxon gets progressively louder. It's probably due to time on the mat with folk doing BJJ, MMA, Kick boxers (ouch, damnit, stop kicking my shin!), etc. It's probably due to my profound lack of ability (which is always a valid question in comments like these), but I could never get those big flow-ey things to work on those guys. They have vastly too much experience to get caught in that kind of thing and recover in a blink, usually resulting in bruising ("I SAID QUIT KICKING MY DAMNED SHIN!!!!).

Probably me.

Carry on...
