Re: Where did O-Sensei get his sword training?

Aikido and the Dynamic Sphere cites records saying that O Sensei learned Yagyu kenjutsu from Masakatsu Nakai in 1903. The fact that only one year is listed means that he was probably just briefly dabbling, though. I can't find a whole lot of evidence of other sword instruction coming from anyone but Takeda.
