New blog post! A Leap of the Spirit - Moritaka (Morihei) Ueshiba in 1932 (http://www.aikidosangenkai.org/blog/leap-spirit-moritaka-morihei-ueshiba/) - "Even when the contest began with three strong men grasping his neck and arms they would be blown away like pieces of paper."

Enjoy!

Interesting.

Regarding this:
“However strong the opponent is, when I stand to face them the power to overcome them, power that I don’t myself understand, comes forth. Moreover, I don’t know anything about what kind of an art Shinto-ryu (神道流) is, but when I contest with Shinto-ryu’s Mr. Otsuka, my hands become completely Shinto-ryu hands. When I meet with a Judo-ka my hands become the hands of Judo”
Was Ueshiba talking about Shindō Yōshin-ryū instructor/Wadō-ryū founder Ōtsuka Hironori?

That's a possibility that occurred to me, but he really doesn't specify, so there's no way to know for sure.
