OK, in answer to that, go back and re-read Dan's first post in this thread and let us know how you think that compares to what you just posted above.
O.K. Done. Comparisons: His Aikido was different to what most thought it was. Others had a hard time understanding where he was coming from. That's about it.
Other things stated in that post imply he was searching for power, I disagree. I think too many equate him with Musashi.
If anything he was searching for responsibility not power in my view.
