The part where Kondo Sensei states that Aikido only took 5 of Daito-Ryu techniques is incorrect in this interview.
Yeah. I have trouble with this, too. DR names techniques according to different criteria than aikido. In fact, most of the DR kata are practiced in aikido, but, famously, in more free-flowing style.
What we in aikido would call IKKYO, e.g., will have several different names according, e.g., to the attack of the moment.
