This short video clip shows a selection of Aikido masters showing off their techniques. The video opens with old movie footage of O-Sensei Morihei Ueshiba, the Founder of Aikido, throwing two of his students around the Aikikai Honbu dojo in the late 1960s. The Master would have been about 80 years old at the time and still practised on the mats. However his techniques did get softer and more gentle with his advancing age. The clip shows modern Aikido teachers as well including movie action star Steven Seagal when he was much younger. There is some good stuff in here, and you will note that not every teacher wears the hakama in their dojo. One pair of Aikidoka are shown wearing black keikogi, which is not seen often in Aikido circles.
