There are also aikido techniques in the Batman cartoon series put out by Warner Bros. in the 1990's. One in which Bruce Wayne enters into an aikido dojo, complete with a kamiza shot of O'Sensei, and takes on 'the master' and then humbly expresses his lack of understanding and reveals his dark inner demons. All in a days dojo.
HA!! just bought a copy on DVD from ebay!!

Interestingly, the director of The Guyver, Screaming Mad George, was a sometime student at Tenshin Dojo. Some of the fight scenes involved highly stylized aikido waza. Matsuoka Sensei, Chief Instructor of Tenshin Dojo at the time was the one in the Guyver costume, while some of the other characters attacking him and then taking ukemi were played by other students from the dojo.

No kidding? I loved that movie!
But I was too young to remember anything about it clearly.

Anyway i just remembered... In Batman begins, there was this scene where Christian Bale and Liam Neeson were training on the Ice with katanas. I recall Liam dropping him down and holding him with a Kote Gaeshi.... i think...
