Takeda Sensei demo showing LOTS of no touch throws and manipulations.

It's interesting after reading an interview with Christian Tessier who said he basically debunks ki (on Aikido Journal??) and isn't Takeda Sensei his teacher???

Has anyone here trained with him and felt this?? Or is it just a show?

Just curious
It's definitely a show. I just hope they take this off the web. It doesn't really help people understand what Aikido is. Judo and BJJ guys just think its hocus pocus. Honestly, when you look at this video you would probably agree with them...
