Re: Grappling In Aikido

Similar? Nah... that's just basic judo osae komi waza - in sequence: yoko shiho gatame (side 4-corner hold), kesa gatame (scarf hold), ushiro kesa gatame (rear scarf hold), kami shiho gatame (top 4-corner hold), kata gatame kami shiho gatame (shoulder hold + top 4-corner hold).

Looking at his wikipedia bio, apparently he is (was?) a 4th-dan in judo.
