A little flashy, but very intertaining

A friend sent this to me today, a little flashy for my tastes, but quite entertaining. Yoshinkan Aikido for the Musical Demo Circuit...

Re: A little flashy, but very intertaining

Yoshinkan or homage to professional wrestling, on that last "technique"?

Fun athletic display.

thanks,
Adam

Re: A little flashy, but very intertaining

Ok, was scanning the google videos, and came across this one:

http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...ch&plin dex=0

An occational training partner and fellow student of Utada Sensei. Rough and tough guy Roman, but a pure bonafide gentleman.

Best,
Ron (took my second dan test with him...OW)

Nice dance moves. Not much to do with reality but pleasant to watch

Re: A little flashy, but very intertaining

Agreed. It reminds me of the type of demo you might do at a karate kata tournement. But fun, and the participants are very athletic. I was a little surprised to see a yoshinkan school doing that...but then I thought, hey what the heck...

Best,
Ron (talking about the first vid)

Re: A little flashy, but very intertaining

Re: A little flashy, but very intertaining

oh, yeahhhhhh!
that was totally enjoyable!

I think I actually heard jesus yelling at about 1:45 in the video. Could be wrong. But that is what he sounded like at the last demo. LOL.
Thanks Ron!
