Here is a nice clip of George Ledyard Sensei teaching at an Aikido seminar. Not sure where the seminar was held but they posted a number of long clips of their seminar with George which this one linked is number thirteen, Each clip that I have so far watched in my opinion seems to have some great information demystifying some of the more hidden or little discussed concepts and principles of aiki. Enjoy.

That was held at Nick Lowrys school "Windsong dojo" in Oklahoma. I haven't watched all of them (there is about 6 hours worth) but there is good info there.

Thanks Haakon,
I would not of guessed Oklahoma. I oddly think of Aikido as being a coast martial art as in West Coast and East Coast LOL. Looks like a great dojo.

I am just past half way thru watching these and have enjoyed all so far.

My first reply went into cyberspace.

This clip demonstrates well the use of broken timing, particularly at the 17 and 18.50 marks. I am not convinced that you would reverse the sequence as shown at the 18.15 mark. It works here because uke has already lost his centre. Thanks for the link.
