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...
I practice Aikido and I don't understand what Aikido is. I wouldn't worry about what folks think.

The other day, I pulled up to the intersection on the way home, the lights were not working. there was a guy in some sort of martial uniform stand in the middle of the intersection. he waved his arms and cars flew by in the direction his arms pointed. I thought his use of the force for no-touch waza was pretty good, impressive even. a thought occur to me that if it was a judo or a bjj guy stood in the middle of the intersection, he/she/it would be one-with-the-pavement or one-with-everything.

have you noticed that whenever you are doing something and you heard a hand clap, you would stop and have the urge to find a line to line-up?
