Re: How does Aikido compare to Aiki-Jujutsu?

That is quite interesting. I was not aware that Matsuda received kyoju-dairi from Takeda. Considering big names like Sagawa, Hisa, and Ueshiba received that licensure it seems pretty significant. If I recall correctly to receive kyoju-dairi you have to know the hiden mokuroku and aiki no jutsu techniques. That would mean that Matsuda had significant exposure to Daitoryu aiki. Did he spend a significant amount of time with Takeda?
