Whilst I understand that martial arts is a high personal business where comments such as these are not always welcome, on the one hand I apologise for the upset I cause but on another I do worry about the safety of some students, specifically in terms of the false confidence that they have come to cherish from their years of training. With this in mind my topic for this week is demonstrations.
To explain the background: the teacher claims to be a very advanced Aiki teacher. He claims to furthermore be an expert on Aikijutsu. The video itself is his defence of what it is he does and what he knows. You’ll note that I have gone through his clip and offered comments. The defence I got was typical being, oh what would you know, this isn’t your martial art. I'll let my comments speak for themselves.
