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

there are some rare folks who can look at things and assimilate pretty quickly. Ueshiba might be one of those who can look at stuffs and understood the principles behind them. he could be Ueshiba of Borg.

incidentally, in asia, it was considered as very bad manner to watch someone doing martial art uninvited, for fear that you might steal their secrets. thousand years of war tend to make folks paranoid and secretive.
