Searching for a particular video

Hi,

it's driving me crazy that I cannot find a video that I watched years ago on YouTube (I think). It showed a young Aikido master who, performing a technique, leapt his whole body into the air, "wrapping" it around the neck/shoulders of uke - all looking amazingly artistic and dynamic.

It was an old video (b&w I think), maybe digitized from film. I'm not really sure if it was Aikido or only Aikido related. I tried many of the great names but wasn't able to find anything remotely dynamic as that which I remember.

Maybe one of you knows already the video I'm referring to? If not, which Aikido masters were known for their dynamic/artistic style (at least in younger years)?

Thanks in advance,

Björn

Re: Searching for a particular video

Hi
The only Aikido teacher I know of in my 65 years of Aikido, is Masamichi Noro Sensei, in the early 60s he was the only teacher to wear all white Gi n Hakama ( does that ring a bell ?) there is an old B/W movie on YouTube taken at the `Hut Dojo` in the early 60s, if you put the right bits of info in YT search you should find it.

Noro Sensei was one of my first guesses, actually. So far I couldn't find the exact video I was looking for but with your hints I found similar videos that convince me that it actually is Noro Sensei I am looking for.

Thanks a lot,

Björn

Perhaps of this one of Noro Sensei. It happens around 1:16 into the video.
