As I noted on another thread in which a poster offered the above "tying of the Magic Pants" with particular attention to the expression on the face of the guy in #8, I think he needs a cigarrette.
Sorry, but the whole Magic Pants indicates, "I do not plan to work very hard, for it is beneath a Warrior like me!"
I love magic pants.
Not as much as i love the magic tabis' "The shoe with the big toe!"
Only the japaneese would come up with a article of clothing so complicated it actually takes time to learn how to wear it. Of course what does that say about the people who still wear it...
Actually step and throw type of techniques are IMO the most practical Aikdio techniques. Basicaly really well timed O Soto Geri's

awful, simply awful....the grip, the throw, the lack of base/balance, the overreaching, lack of control over uke, the piss poor ukemi.....he must have forgot to charge up his magical pants that morning...

The problem with Aikido is that they don't teach you the O Soto so when you go for the step and throw and screw it up you can go for the O Soto or twist your body into a hip throw or tai o toshi that might be there.
