Re: Vantage points

I'm sure I'm going to get yelled at but this is my vantage point:

1) Takeda - O'Sensei - Unusual Power
2) Takeda - Kodo - Unusual Power
3) Takeda - Sagawa - Unusual Power

Common Thread - Daitoryu Aiki

Gozo Shioda - Unusual Power - from where?
Shirata - Unusual Power - from Where ?
Dan Harden - Unusual Power - from where ?

I'm not saying that there aren't other systems that possess unusual power, but in historical context of Aikido/Daitoryu, I find this to be true.

And please, don't question Dan's Daitoryu lineage. All it means is that you don't have enough information to back up what you say.

Happy New Year !
