Confused Ueshiba + Chin-Na?


does anyone know if 0'sensei studied in Shoalin Chin-Na at any time in his life? You see a few websites i have visited have stated that Chin-Na is the roots of both jui-jutsu and aikido. Chin-Na is used as an add-on art to many chinese systems of kung-fu, and is supposed to be so many thousand years old.

I know O'sensei traveled to china in his life and was wondering if he picked some up there?
If this is not the case can anyone explain a kind of historical lineage from aikido to chin-na?
