Unhappy Re: Information on Ken Ota

His major Aikido influence was Koichi Tohei (during the late 1960's and early 1970's). My personal characterization of his style is 'early Ki Society', i.e. a large emphasis on effortless power, rhythm, timing. I offer that Ken differs from most Ki Society dojos, and for that matter most Aikido dojos, in that he has a unique emphasis on speed, rhythm, and timing.

KAMI : I stumbled...
Ken Ota Sensei is Ki-Society, not Aikikai. My mistake...
