Aiki at Hombu w/ Tohei

The recent Ueshiba's Aiki post has a constellation of Aikido stars mentioned in defense of 'Aiki' exercises and whether they were included in the teaching at O'sensei's Hombu dojo.

The following screen capture takes place at the hombu, complete with O'sensei, Kissomaru, Tohei, smiling Saotome, large Dobson and others.

What is neat about this is the segment where Tohei explains (using Dobson as training partner) aiki with PUSHING and PULLING exercises.

Having been to Dan Harden's seminars, I think Dobson would get a "Good Job, now straighten the head!" from Dan the Man.

Good find! What video is this from? It would be interesting to see in what context they are doing these exercises. Maybe someone might be able translate if there is audio?

really interesting find. thanks.
