The autumn leaves are falling like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians and you, you are a thousand miles away, there are always two cups at my table.

T’ang Dynasty poem

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.

I wasn't too into the the first video for the first minute or so - never liked those "touch you with my pinkie" take downs. But when the police demo began around the 2:00 mark, the demonstrated techniques really shine through.

And it was nice to see a lady get chucked around too! lol

The best aikido demonstrations require sincere attacks; no fat guys stumbling around looking for an excuse to fall down.
