Hi Ron,
not as an immediate reply, but a follow up question to anybody who might have information: I have often heard that Tada Sensei has a complete system of body conditioning that he even teaches once a year for a week in La Spezia, Italy. I have only seen bits of it at a seminar with one of his students. Also, Kobayashi Hirokazu taught a system of bodywork which is an integral part of his tradition but I believe it can also be learned and practiced separately from aikido. Both these system are never heard of in the IS contex really (which might have to do with the fact that both these teachers do not have much of a presence in the US) - does anybody, maybe from France, Italy or Germany, have more detailed information? Or maybe Prof. Goldsbury on Tada Sensei?
Hiroshi Tada speaks a little bit about Ki no Renma in this article.

Best,

Chris
