    A lot of those techniques do work against resisting opponents. I've seen plenty of dynamic flying armbars and flying take downs in high level judo tournaments. The Russians were masters of that type of stuff.

    However, the way the guy in the video does most of that stuff would not work. He seems to add in a lot of unnecessary movements for effect and I see no effective kuzushi. It seems like he's taken a lot of good moves and flashed them up to look cool while simultaneously rendering them ineffective. Fucking brilliant!

    Can anyone get this file up for download? I'd love to add it to my collection.

    It's neat stuff to watch and would make a great demo, but of course like everyone has said, it has some really flashy stuff that probably wouldn't work on a more resisting opponent.

    Looks like a great way to get your shoulder dislocated during a demo. Looks cool, but I'm glad I'm not the one being demonstrated upon.

    I think sometimes we're a little overcritical of demos (and I am as well).

    I mean, lets face it- if you could put on one of your own demos and pull out a bunch of flashy **** like that, people would think you're uber deadly (and you'd look cool doing it to).

    I will differentiate though between a demo clip and a video of techniques.


    This is a better demo anyways:
