YouTube: World's Fair Demo 1964 Yoshimitsu Yamada & Oscar Ratti



Here's a historical aikido video of an aikido demonstration at the 1964 World's Fair in New York City which includes footage of a young Yoshimitsu Yamada who had been invited to demonstrate aikido at the Fair.

Can anyone here identify others in the video?

How is no one being thrown into the water!? That would be too hard to resist!

Ichi Go, Ichi Ei!

cool vid! The little kid is awesome. Neat to see Oscar Ratti in action too. I've always loved his drawings as well as "Aikido and the Dynamic Sphere". A must have in any Aikido library.

Thanks for posting! How cool! In the first video, the woman introducing the demonstrations (in the lower right corner of the screen) standing by the microphone (the best view is when the kid is demonstrating) with the white headband is my mom Virginia Mayhew.
