In a Japanese reference, Delucia's aikido style is called "combat aikido" or "sport aikido." He actually has a very impressive fight history which can easily be found on the Web, if you want to look for that sort of thing. A better "visual" presentation is a the Seishin page, http://www.seishinmaska.com/Instructors.htm

I doubt you would see many "traditional" aikido instructors in that "uniform."

We just had an outstanding "traditional" aikido sensei bow out. I hope we don't have a similar experience with this "sport/combat" aikido sensei, if he should decide to join the forum.
