Re: Ki Aikido - quote from Gleason Sensei

Regarding Shoida of the Yoshinkan branch, there has been mention of his spending some training time with Kodo Horikawa besides his training with Ueshiba.

However, in addition from "Aikido Shugyo" in a footnote on pg 153 we get the tidbit, "Shioda Kancho says that during his years at the Ueshiba Dojo, he once had the opportunity to act as uke for Sokaku."

I have wondered if this time led him to eventually train with Kodo later in his life, having experienced first hand the effect (affect) of aiki.
