Here at the frontier, the leaves fall like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians, there are still two cups at my table.

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.

Takeno Sensei from the Yoshinkan

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.
