Re: Video clip Iwama Aikido

I liked the more realistic range, the intensity, the speed, the martial aspect it of it all, etc., - fantastic - and I think it shows again that sometimes to move to the heart of something you have to move away from the center of something. But man I think it would have been an even louder statement if it wasn't so choreographed in the more freestyle demonstrations. Please don't take this as a criticism - I mean it only as an encouragement to next time just go for it, trusting that the obvious skill will still be visible to both the trained and untrained eye even if the demo doesn't end up looking like a Hollywood movie.
