It is important to differentiate personal experience from what the system actually teaches. I have no doubt that Tomiki could switch effortlessly between Ju and Aiki waza including newaza, but it does not mean that this is what he wanted to pass on as the fundamentals of his Aikido.
Well, this is the fundamental point of the Aikido of Mochizuki Sensei. Judo Aikido Ichi. And this is (I believe) what he wanted to pass on as (one of) the fundamentals of his Aikido.
