Mochizuki and Tomiki were the only ones who got Menkyo Kaidan from Ueshiba. At that time Ueshiba was teaching Daito Ryu.



Roy Suenaka sensei was given a menkyo kaiden certificate by O'sensei prior to opening the Okinawa Aikikai, I belive in '63 or '64... not sure about the date, my books are at home.
