But does this prove greater martial effectiveness? For one uke telegraphs the attack very obviously and doesn't conceal the weapon so Ueshiba can more easily judge the distance.
It seems to me that if he applies technique similarly, regardless of whether his uke is armed with a knife or not, that his technique is going to be pretty effective whether or not the uke is armed with a knife.
