Moriteru Ueshiba Inspires

A while back I remember watching a video in which Moriteru Ueshiba was showing how to do some basic techniques. I thought it odd when he showed iriminage that his arm went out to his side as much as it did. The reason I thought it odd was because when I watched him do iriminage earlier, his throwing arm stayed in front of him, in his center. I guess there's a difference between how to show a technique and how to do it fluidly. As I watched this video, again I noticed how his hands stayed in front of him. The ease with which he moves inspires me.

I originally came across this video at Aikicosmos. It was posted on the G+ Aikido community. The man who posted it on YouTube, Guillaume Erard, composed the beautiful music.
