Yeah, agree that a lot is speculation. But, another question, which I don't know the answer to, is did Sagawa, Kodo, Hisa create someone like them? Another version of that level? If not, then have we lost something that Takeda had and taught to a few?Mark

Hmmm ... guess it's time to review the videos again. And order more.

And yes, it's definitely a different way of looking at it. It's why I posted on the other thread about "catching air". Can't argue with you on that. That's why I'm going up the stairs.

If you look close you will see him do things I think you will now recognize and have a better, basic understanding of. "Hidden in plain site" takes on a whole new meaning, demystifies the approach and then makes it at least available to you to train.

Ukemi as-a-teacher.... as a means to power.
Ueshiba to Tenryu..."push me, push me up that hill."
Ueshiba to Shioda push me.....

Hmmm.......Tenryu graduates in three months. Ueshiba tells him " no one will be abke to throw you or touch you.
Shioda (also trained in DR) leaves and becomes..well...shioda.

How are we..Ellis, Mike, Rob and me saying anything all?
