Attending a period of study in Japan on the Oomoto Foundation grounds, where I had the opportunity to pay a visit to the tomb of Ueshiba Sensei, I encountered Hiramasa Maeda Sensei, who developed a budo called Waraku, which in the opinion of experienced Aikido people bears some resemblance with old films of Ueshiba Sensei practicing his art.
You can find more information on this site: xoomer.virgilio.it/waraku (soon also on www.waraku.it)
