Small effective movement. The Aikido taught in the 1950s by Kenshiro Abbe Sensei was very tight and short movement such as this, he was a high ranking Judoka, I found that most of the early Aikido teachers I trained with had initially studied Judo - Kenshiro Abbe - Tadashi Abe - Masahilo Nakazono - TK Chiba - I often read where people say " there is no kicking and punching in Aikido " - in those early days, they all taught to kick and punch, as I still do.

Re: Small Circle Aikido for Self Defence.

My Sensei called it Telephone Booth Aikido. This was back in the day when there were telephone booths.

I think this illustrates some strategic points about unplanned encounters:

1) Surprise is effective
2) Surprise is enhanced by not reciprocating initial aggression
3) A surprised aggressor has poor ukemi
4) An unanticipated fall is psychologically debilitating
5) Unprepared ukemi likely ends up with the head striking the ground, and is physically disorienting.

Cordially,

6) A relatively calm demeanor throughout the encounter makes the assailant/target (can't really apply "victim" in this case) relationship abundantly clear, which will be very handy when the police are interviewing witnesses and deciding what to do with you.

Re: Small Circle Aikido for Self Defence.

Throughout the video, tori seems to be setting up their positions for this throw (he had to get enough space). Nicely done!

I wonder it this was staged. Uke's leg goes up at the end, with the bent knee sticking up. It's just like we are taught to do in Iwama-style aikido.
