Re: Has anyone surpassed O'Sensei?

There have certainly been people in aikido who have equaled or surpassed O'sensei in technical martial skill or fighting ability, but that wasn't what drew people to him either. In that regard, there doesn't seem to be anyone who has equaled him, much less surpassed him.

As for the outstretched arms and very "full" look that he presents in the video.... kind of odd that most basic practice rarely looks like that...
Dear Jason,
Since very few people nowadays know very little about O sensei and his technical /fighting abilities [except for a few videos/you tube clips]are you speaking from a position of authority when you make your statement?Cheers, Joe.
