If you like dancing.

If you like watching dancing, you might enjoy this. I think it's awsome! The big fella can move!

Yeah but can he do aikido? Somehow I think he won't make it very far on "So, you think you can dance".

Ultracrepidarianism ... don't.

Re: If you like dancing.

Cool moves!
I'm not sure if I've posted this on aikiweb yet or not, but this is my favorite dance video. I came across it while "learning" some swing.
Enjoy!

There is also this one, for those who like their Lindy Hop more martially effective.

Pretty bad-ass, but I dunno, the one guy completely missed her like three times with his kicks! All in all it just looked like a bunch of dancing to me!

Oh, I think most people in that video would make a fair fist at Aikido.

Ellis Amdur wrote a great piece ob a ballet dancer taking her first Taekwondo lesson . It's on the Aikido Journal site somewhere.

Re: If you like dancing.

Those were cool.
Check out this kid<. Amazing what you can do with no bones! More like that..but with martial applicability intact: here< and here<. ...but that stuff's old tho. If you're going to learn some new moves...maybe consider this< new dance .. craze with the kiddies. at least that's what i see on the intertube. Inspired by the fine cinema selection: 'Weekend at Bernies'.
