I found this nice Video Clip of Nishio Sensei on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IY6ihEtD72Q
Does anyone have the mpeg for download somewhere ?
Or any other from his earlier days ?
(I saw Nishio Sensei when he was 65+, it seems his technique was much more dynamic in the earlier days. IŽd like to view more evidence for that, also more of his early Aiki Toho forms.)
I suggest you purchase it since the copyrighted clip was lifted from one of Stan Pranin's Aikido Friendship Demonstration CD/DVD's. You can find them and other Nishio Shihan Media at the Aikido Journal Website.
His forms have not changed too much from the date of the clip (Mid 80's) and He is giving a quick demo of all facets of our Aikido including our principle of Irimi aka "Ending the conflict at the moment of contact"
I knew him in his later years and having taken Ukemi from him all I can tell you is his skill increased over time up almost till he retired from teaching. Our Aikido emphasizes Maai and Movement over strength so it is possible to continue to improve even as one gets older.
