  1. I was privileged to see one of these extraordinary men when I was young, the demonstration was this physically small Japanese man against one entire American football team. The entire team came at him together, all of them at once. They lost. The lesson stuck.

  2. What I like is that in these old films, the aikido appears less scripted, less prearranged, more spontaneous (or takemusu) than nowadays in many dojos. That's good training, especially for the higher levels/grades
