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?
Hi Bob,

Don't know about that but there is a karate school that was heavy influenced by Morihei Ueshiba in the early 1930's. The time when he was still teaching Daito-ryu aikijutsu. The founder of the school was Yasushiro Konishi and at that time he called his style Shindo Jinen-Ryu Karate-jutsu. Today, the organization he started is called Japan Karate-do Ryobu-kai.
