Re: Horikawa teaching Shioda?
Anyone who has studied aikido seriously knows you can't learn it from watching. You have to feel both the uke and shite parts of techniques before you start to understand. Unless perhaps you are a prodigy. But if Shioda was a prodigy, it would raise the question why he couldn't learn aikido during the time he studied with Ueshiba.
Shioda wasn't like Mr."Anyone".
They say he was taught Daito Ryu and didn't need 40+ years of serious study of aikido to not even to start to understand.
