Re: my sensei "video clip"

Should give credit to his ukes. Look at other masters such as Tissier etc. They all have outstanding technique but its the skill of their uke that make them look good in demos. Kind of stating the obvious here...

Regarding Shioda deliberately hurting people, it kind of comes with the territory although I think its less common now due to legal issues.

My teacher told when he joined the Yoshinkan aikido club at Takushoku university the instructors would beat the hell out of the new students. He said they tried it with him but after he dished out a few hard mukae doashi (irmi nage) in randori they stopped. They didn't know he already had dan grades in Yoseikan aikido and karate... or maybe they did and just wanted to test him...
