I do not believe this is a correct statement.
My understanding is that we all agree that Mike saw it.
[I bolded the "aiki".]
My impression is that this means he also see IT but is not too impressed with that particular application of aiki.
Mike says Nishikido has IT and Dan says "he is not very good". Seems like a point of contention to me.
As for Kuroda, Dan has "to feel him".
From what I see, Kuroda is very very good.
