We did a few stunt choreography practices for our upcoming martial arts web series Swords of Insurgency which included some Aikido, just one technique in this video but there will be some more sword work to come which was filmed last night, David Norton 4th Dan is one of the fight choreographers.

Re: Aikido in Stunt Choreography for Film

looked fun. where is the asian guy that supposed to die a horrible death on the first scene? what about zombies? there got to be zombies, right? since zombies are the in fad. opening scene, asian guy chased by zombies, kept looking back (like he doesn't know what chasing him), tripped and impaled on his own sword, zombies surrounded the dying dude, and proceed to rip him to shred while he screams "where's the tips?" cut to scene where another dude eating out of a chinese food carton, and yelling "how could he messed up on my order of fried rice and egg rolls?" "i wished the bastard die of a horrible death!" *cue dramatic solemn music*
