There are many different forms of randori, or free play in the martial arts. Even within Aikido there is great variety. Here are several of the more interesting examples of randori I've found on the net.

Although not aikido (per se), the following is really closest that I have found on the net to the randori that we do.


  1. You know as much as I've seen of Seagal videos he just doesn't seem to have a certain something I've seen in others. I'm in no position to judge obviously, but it always looks like more muscle than skill in a couple of spots.

  2. I think it's the expression on his face. He looks like he tenses up each time he does a grab or throw and I'm far from being an expert, but I've never seen anyone else do that.

  3. Our sensei (older) laughs because we make pucker lips of tension when we get ready to do something. Talk about telegraphing!

  4. Yeah, guys, he does have the pucker factor for sure.
