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.

Gozo Shioda Yoshinkan Aikido Demonstrations

A compilation of demonstrations done by Yoshinkan Aikido founder Gozo Shioda from 1978 to 1981. At  the time, Shioda would have been in his mid 60's.

I don't like some of the behavior of the ukes, but the power and timing of Shioda is unmistakable.
