I would say that his comments should be considered fairly authoritative, being based on years of hands-on experience. But clearly you missed the recent post where he talked about remembering particular events completely differently from others who were in the same place at the same time.

The question is whether the claims that you and others make about a variety of things related to Aikido, in yo ho, and aiki are correct and if they are also the views of Saotome Sensei (not a debate I started but you brought to this thread). For example, Saotome Sensei wrote that Aikido developed from sword movement and nature and not primarily from Daito ryu.
