Here's what I have issue with about your statements. Peter is trying to build an understanding of the context of the origin of Aikido.
And he asked for comments. I gave them -- premised on my substantive criticism of certain previous remarks (and suppositions) by others on this topic made in this forum and elsewhere that are often too simplistic a reading of that history. Prof. Goldsbury's effort I have nothing but praise for, nor have I ever expressed otherwise, so I find the reaction just a tad overborne.

And, I suspect, that I'll say more on other things if a point strikes me.
