Aikido - Putting the Art into Martial!

There is more to Aikido that simple self-defence techniques. The best Aikido is smooth, fluid and, well, just plain beautiful. In that spirit, I really enjoyed this video by an Indonesian teacher in which he demonstrates a number of defences against attacks while simultaneously manipulating a fan! This is not only aesthetically pleasing but it also shows a high level of skill. I hope you enjoy watching this as much I I did.
