Re: O sensei and 'correct ukemi'

Thanks for your reply Dan.

I didn't mean to imply that DR was (or is) particularly accessible in Japan (even now), and, FWIW, I agree with Ellis's points RE a lot of the jujutsu. I've seen guys who move like bears with arthritis.

I actually attended a workshop with Ellis years ago and found his jujustu beautiful.

I merely wanted to point out that at least one notable exponent was apparently quite happily showing "Aiki" stuff in public back "in the day."

Have you come across the Feb 2008 edition of Hiden?
