Re: Ueshiba + Chin-Na?

I didn't think he was saying that aikido (or XYZ ryu jujutsu) originated in China. I agree it would be a bit of a stretch. But the underpinnings of some of the more sophistocated body power manifestations from at least some school most likely did have quite an influence from Chen Gempin. It would be quite a stretch to think that people built the guy a temple for any other reason.
