    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    The greatest Aikido demonstration I've seen to this date

    In honour of all the Aikido threads popping up lately, I just couldn't pass up sharing this gem I just found:

    I know you're going to hate me for starting another one, but it's a good vid.

    EDIT:
    Are the guys in this video trying to be funny? Is this a spoof?
    The bald guy in this video is Watanabe Sensei, instructor at Hombu Dojo, the Aikikai headquarters in Tokyo, Japan.

    ?!?!?!?! Is this some fusion of Aikido and Capoeira? Capoeira in magic pants would look awesome. I did a bit of it once for an XMA demo in high school, but I didn't use the Force like this bald guy. Mad tumbling skills on the part of the younger guy though.

    That's hot. I'll bet that old guy's got some goodies hidden under those magic pants...

    I mean, uh... this should be in the video forum.
