You can pretty much find close approximations of techniques you see in aikido in many other martial arts. One of the reasons I got into aikido in the first place was to bolster bunkai from karate.

I saw a Taichi teacher do shihonage - he was explaining some move and 'presto' - there it was. Taichi has pretty much everything hidden in there somewhere.

ikkyo and kotegaeshi are ubiquitous in martial arts, since human tends to fold either forward (ikkyo) or backward (kotegaeshi). it's kinda like hotdog (sausage) in various cultures. in some place, you might get the real thing, other places like the U.S., you might get unmentionable stuffs.

btw, i liked the reverse in the video.

This karate demonstration also shows a lot of moves that look very similar to aikido moves (and taichi moves as well I think): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Sj8sUY5FIc
