Looks like koshinage applied to a sawhorse.

Re: Image of Aikido Mascot at 2010 Combat Games

I think it is a wooden man.... perhaps a karate shodan could handle him better? At least he could use his board breaking skills at long last!

Re: Image of Aikido Mascot at 2010 Combat Games

It looks like they have another logo for the aikido section of the Combat Games:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/4648555...n/photostream/

In the same Flickr photostream is a picture of the aikido officials there which include Tissier sensei, Yokota sensei, and our very own Peter Goldsbury and Stefan Stenudd:

Re: 2010 Combat Games

Here's the YouTube channel for the Combat Games:

http://www.youtube.com/user/combatgamechannel#p/u

Doing a search for "hqd" in the search box near the middle-right of the page (above "Date Added | Most Viewed | Top Rated"), you'll get a list of the aikido video clips so far posted.

(Tissier sensei's demonstration is here in this clip with Yokota sensei's demonstration immediately following that here. (Audio is messed up in their clip...))
