Re: The "real" techniques not taught to everyone?
I think it's more sweeping than Daito ryu. You never really want to believe it, but there are pointers that the aikido world did the same thing. As Americans, we tend to believe the best in people. You work hard, you get somewhere. I think that nature was taken advantage of but proof is hard to come by sometimes. Little bits and pieces are there ... maybe one day to show the big picture, maybe not. Still ... it has to make you wonder.
Come on Mark We're Gaijin What did you expect??? Why would someone want to transmit Aiki to everybody they taught??? This is one area I do give major props to folks like Dan.
