I think that explains why you "see" and talk about Ueshiba's skills so highly the way you do, and why I never have.
Dan, once again.... quit asserting what I think or see unless you have some quotes, rather than guesswork. Show the quotes.
Because Ueshiba was a little shakey when he was in his 80's, don't make broad suppositions about his skills in his prime and assume that you're in a position to judge him. Let's wait and see what you look like in your 80's.
