See attached file. The photo of admiral Takeshita is almost the same as Ohba sensei, Tomiki's assistent, demonstrating a technique from a kata of the Tomiki system called Koryu no kata dai roku.
In these koryu no kata many techniques have a prewar history from the time Tomiki and Ohba were students of Ueshiba.
The koryu no kata in the Tomiki system is not known in depth by many Tomiki aikidoka.
