Re: Best karate style for aikido?

Hmmm...wasn't there a style of karate that was developed by a mid-ranking dan grade aikidoka in the early 1970's in Japan? Emphasis is one avoidance ('irimi and tenkan'). What was it called...Seibukan? Tsubokan?

I believe there was also a well known aikido instructor who was a amateur boxer. Fun to watch him slip, jab and cross before throwing from that one youtube clip I saw yonks ago

There is of course Daido Juku, Yoseikan Budo etc...but those may beyond the scope of the original question
