    In real life the aggressor with the knife will slaughter you. The moment you block his attack (if you are able to at all), he will pull his arm back and stab you again. While there is no defense to guarantee a 100% success against the knife user, there are sure better ways to defend yourself.

    Aikido Journal had an interesting video on the limitation of kotegaeshi with a highly skilled knife attacker:
    Hypothetically, in the historical context of Daito-ryu/battle field scenarios, are these the kind of attacks that would pierce body armor? The above ukemi appears to be’ yes’ and are perhaps the roots of technique. However in a modern scenario, would ukemi need to extend so much ki in their attack when the benefits of a tanto are lethal speed? I’m guessing the Fililpino attacks in the link would be limited by Japanese armour if applied . I’m not a martial artist but simply an observer.

    It's fine but many people forgot that they must practice in a dojo. It's interesting to see how this training is all focused on disarming, in relation to the defensive rules and code of Aikido Iwama Ryu. To all the beginners: please, read "the heart of Aikido" by Morihei Ueshiba, the founder of Aikido, then shape the purposes through Shintoism which is the only way to defeat the skeptical demons of the western side ;)

    @armin dino suljic   yes it does and the fact that the uke flips over is due to the fact he falls down in order not to break his wrist , that kind of fall is called '' ukemi'' and the ''uke'' ( the one who recieves the technique) has to perform ukemi  so that he doesn't break his limbs that's why the guy in the video falls like that , on someone who doesn't know how to do ukemi that technique will just break the wrist of the opponent.

    Are you serious, Dojomania? You post a video for the public, but no one has the right to criticise it, or suggest a better way of doing things? If your techniques work, and if you really want to help people to protect themselves, then why would criticism bother you?

    would also like to say that this is not an instructional video…ya can't watch this and all of a sudden neutralize a knife attack with kotegaeshi.There are so many myriad essential points to learn and put into practice in moving your body, knowing which muscles/joints to lock on Uke, how to tell uke's momentum, tension in the body, timing,feeling the flow of Ki, here nage has accomplished success by years of practice. Aikido is beautiful, seriously effective, and also requires a LOT more practice than most other martial arts. Go practice with NY Aikikai!

    Beautifully executed, well filmed, right to the point, using traditional Japanese methods …aikido and jujutsu used an excellent knowledge of human anatomy for their techniques. Well done, guys.
