I'd suggest that Shioda's method of breaking things down into simple concepts may present somewhat of a misleading potential in the same manner.
I.e., people can put almost religious faith in Shioda's deliberate and clever simplifications, but an open mind may need to be kept about what Shioda actually knew. That bit I saw him do on Shingi Denju DVD was well beyond anything I ever saw him mention in writing.
sure he could rely on shihonage alone but also had a variety of judo ,sumo and devoted application to daito ryu method of kokyu ryoku .
