Re: YouTube: Aikido Demonstration w/Mazhar Dardari

The thing about demos and much (not all) aikido practice is that uke is usually only in attack mode - not "attack but don't get nailed doing it" mode.
Is it true that just before the first bell in a boxing match, the ref's instructions include "... and protect yourself at all times..." or something like that?

We attack with "shomen" for example (name a movement) and don't do follow-up strikes. Feints? So, the person doing the demo gets to look very good, because he or she knows that the attacker is going to do the "set" attack, and isn't (in a practice situation) going to be doing back-up attacks, and isn't going to be hiding the main attack with distractions.
But what the heck - I'm going to turn up to practice this afternoon - not only is there SOME potential that it may save my bacon, but it satisfies some of the other needs - a bit of vertigo, a bit of asceticism, a bit of elevated heart rate, a bit of flexibility, a bit of confusion - all of which also contribute to saving my bacon - or - at least to prolonging my time "vertical" instead of "ashes"...

Re: YouTube: Aikido Demonstration w/Mazhar Dardari

Well I would rather watch the original vid than uke for it. It's business time! Dramatic titles are good...after all we are wearing costumes and acting like we're from another world.

Seriously, anyone who trash talks someone's vid should post their own for a well measured and civil reaming.

Thank you Mr. Dardari.. nice demo...I enjoyed it very much. Also, what style is this? (Tomiki, Aikikai, or Yoshinkan)
