I'm glad you like it.
Shimamoto is not from Tohei's lineage, but his aikido is on the softer side of the aikikai spectrum. He is a zen priest too, running the Shosenji temple in Toyonaka, Osaka prefecture. His dojo is located in the temple.

Some articles about him:

A few months before this seminar he had two thirds of his stomach removed. I was surprised to see how well he recovered.
