Very nice. Really amazing. His movement is so good. Say, does anyone know any of the uke?

This is a great video. This is the youngest that I have ever seen Angier sensei. I hate to be greedy but....do you know of any others?

The films viewed from the link above include three different demonstrations. The uke in the first film was a San Diego PD swat officer with an Italian name I cannot remember just now. The uke in the second and third demo's is a longtime student of Don Angier from the 1970's named James Holloman. I understand James stopped training some time ago due to health problems. An interesting aside is that if you look in the background of the 3rd demo you can just make out a short man wearing glasses standing in front of the right door frame. That man was my sensei, Yukiyoshi Takamura. He described this demo to me long before I first saw this footage.Tobin E Threadgill / Kaicho

Wow, that was beautiful.
I've seen some of the sword techniques before, but I actually believe them now.

Now that is probably THE only westerner to legitimately be a soke.
