Re: Taisabaki and Ueshiba

Mark,

I've shared this on other posts, but, it was relayed to me by students of Nakakura Kiyoshi that when asked, "How can you remain so successful in Kendo Shiai into your later years?" He replied, "It is due to my Aikido training under Ueshiba sensei."

This is a pretty bold statement to make to a bunch of Kendoka, and obviously Nakakura Kiyoshi wasn't doing Aikido waza in his Kendo shiai.

FWIW,

Allen

BTW, there is an interview of Nakakura Kiyoshi by Stan and also a brief interlude related in Shioda's Shugyo book.
