And yet this statement is a matter of debate for you:

The founder of AIKIDO, Morihei Ueshiba O-sensei, spent many years adapting techniques from Daito-Ryu Jujitsu and other martial arts to embody the principle of AWASE.
Well, yes, wasn't that how the conversation started?

I know you have visited Iwama. I think it was clear that I was referring to the current research you and others are doing related to IP/Aiki. Are you saying you came to Iwama as an IP/Aiki proponent in relation to this?
Yes, although I knew much less then than I do now, and by the time I was getting deeper into this the elder Saito was too ill to interact with very much.
