Aikido for the Street - Video

Via SportzBlitz.

Interesting video of Aikido being practised for street effectiveness. I think it looks good and the guy doing the moves looks sharp but at the end of the day, he is doing it on a co-operating partner.

Does this matter THAT much? Im not sure. You can only do so much to a training partner before hurting them. I think it is good, but the element of Aliveness and a partner fighting back to an extent is missing.

Well, here it is.

What are your thoughts?
