Re: Terry Ezra Sensei and Seidokan

I trained with Ezra sensei several times in the 90's when my then teacher was a direct student of Kanetsuka, as was Terry. Even then it was clear that he was doing his own Aikido, one which was in constant development. I have not met him in the last 10 years or so but I believe he is still following his own form of blending the technical to the more esoteric aspects of MA. I never heard any mention of Kobyashi as an influence.
