Slow. And very choppy. Fix it and it will look great.

Oh no, that isn't Aikido, you're clearly seeing him use his power, I'll try to make one.

That's more like judo. In aikido you don't put energy in to your throws or attacks, you simply redirect the energy put in by the attacker. That's what makes aikido look so smooth and choreographed.

Work on smoothness above all other things. For tests, I recommend not wasting time on backgrounds, unless of course you're testing out the background itself.

In which case do waste time on backgrounds.

Although you won't be wasting time because there's a purpose

Lol. i did aikido for somewhere around 6 years. i know what it is, it was just animated badly. and ive had a year off of it.

As for backrounds, often the backround and the sky color are what inspire an animation. i cant animate on just white, it just feels too empty. and it doesnt take me long to make a bg.

Thats a good 6 years down the drain.
