Re: Where Did Ueshiba Morihei's Training Go?
I find your list interesting. If we go one step back there is another question. O Sensei "stole" parts of other arts to "create" Aikido. We now do Aikido and are exhorted to do O Sensei's aikido (whatever that was!) but that would mean cross training, theft, and ultimately abandoning your teacher to create your own art. Further a look into "Transparent Power" depicts an approach to training that is perhaps closer to Ueshiba ryu than the PR image we have inherited.
