Aikido training of UNDSS (United Nations Department of Safety and Security) personnel

Short film about Aikido training of UNDSS (United Nations Department of Safety and Security) personnel at the regional headquarters for the UN in South America - ECLAC / CEPAL - in Santiago, Chile.

It includes demonstrations of a number of techniques, including close protection, knife and gun disarming and pinning. In the movements shown, one can see the flowing, circular nature of Aikido forms, and how force, rather than being met with more force, is instead redirected into an unbalanced state and then toppled.
