    I’ve seen some other videos of the Yoshinkan Aikido recently and have mixed feelings about it. Looks extremely efficient as far as self-defense goes, which of course complies well with the notion of martial art. Rather linear though, don’t see much evidence of the idea of not causing a damage. It wouldn’t surprise me one bit if he broke someone’s arm or leg, just to demonstrate who the boss is. For these purposes, I’d rather go for karate or something in that line and spill out the exceeding testosterone. Far from being in favour of too softish styles, but frankly how much is there left of the O-Sensei’s idea of not letting oneself get hurt as well as not hurting the partner?
    Still I have to admit, he’s sly as fox and flexible as hell.
