Hi Jørgen
I went to an easter 6 day seminar with one of Nishio Senseis top japanese students, I can´t remember his name.. I think it was back in 2003-2004..? Nishio Sensei was unfortunately not present..
Must have been Arisoue Takao sensei. Maybe his first or second year as successor to Nishio sensei. Obviously he was very stressed while trying to fill the void after such a prominent and unique teacher as Nishio sensei. Safe to say he has grown into the task during these past 10 years. He will be here again this year:

You should be welcome to join us

I would have liked to watch him in person.. But anyway I was a rookie back then so the whole Nishio system was quite a challenge for me and grasping the various concepts were difficult. Anyway thanks, great post.
The Nishio system (in lack of a better term) is my only point of reference within Aikido - but I still find it plenty challanging none the less
