    Its ****, even for Aikido
    1) His distancing and footwork aren't even wrong, they're missing entirely.
    2) Not a single atemi. (Hit him in the face to distract him long enough to apply fancy wristlock, or to get his head moving in the direction you want to project him)
    3) No Zanshin.

    It didn't even look like any of those guys were resisting the throws.

    From the website http://www.okolonaaikido.org/

    Okolona Aikido in Louisville Kentucky offers systematic, combat oriented Aikido. Aikido is normally taught as thousands of separate techniques that take many years to learn. Systematic means that we approach Aikido as one simple principle of taking a persons balance. This is combined with a few basic body movements to produce all of the techniques.Combat oriented means that we both attack and defend using the Aikido principle and basic movements. In addition to these basics we also practice defending against common attacks one is likely to encounter. We study weapons both as training tools for the Aiki principle and as fighting implements. We emphasize reflex development, combat strategy and Aiki striking as well as the basic Aikido throws and submissions. We use foam padded weapons for some of our training and we practice ground fighting.

    Their attacks are so bad, it has inspired me to get out the striking pads for my next aikido class...just to make sure none of our guys suck as bad.

    They weren't resisting, and those weren't throws. Words fail me.

    And for his first trick, he made everyone's Aikido skills disappear. Next, he creates the illusion that the group is actually practicing martial arts.

    Agreed.

    Movement by all shown was pitiful, particularly the two younger men

    Had to look again.

    Unbendable arm? Could not find.

    Yep, not much aikido as I remember it.

    I don't think that is even possible. I couldn't identify, within that video, a single principle of any martial art that I have ever seen.

    Is it possible that they were attempting to choreograph some type of scene? I'm open to any explanation of what that really was. I am content that it wasn't martial arts.

    Pro tip: if you don't have the pads out for every class, your guys certainly do suck at striking.
