Here's an Aikido demonstration by Nobuyoshi Tamura (8th dan, 1933-2010) demonstrating at New York Aikikai's 20th anniversary.

What are your thoughts on this video?

I like how he subtly moves to get into position for his next throw and stays connected to his uke the whole time.

Dear All,
Seen this video many times,It still remains one of my all time favourites. Tamura Sensei in his own unique way executed mastery herein.Great timing and with at times humour and consummate showmanship.I ask myself the question , will we ever see his like again??Truly a great master of the Art.Was one of the Uke[the swordsman] Tiki Shewan Sensei?Shewan Sensei is a skilled swordsman .Tamura Sensei really controlled the encounter . Cheers, Joe.
