Goodnight and Aikido Video

Yay, Iris!

Iris was here. That was yay. Maryam and Russell ran game. That was also yay. I finished the new third act of La Maupin. Again, that was yay.

But the main purpose for this post: I found an amazing aikido video of a guy's black belt test. Notice how he's always relaxed, never meets an attack head on or seeks to resist. Even in the parts where he appears to strike you'll see that if you look closely he's merely feinting so that he can redirect. I like this style of aikido a great deal.
