Re: Ueshiba vs. Gun Squad

After O'Sensei's war experiences, I believe that he just gained an understanding of how people handled guns, and was able to see how they were fired, like any other instinct that we gain as Aikidoka. It may or may not be exactly as told, but I believe that the gunmen may just have been so uptight that it was just even easier to tell the direction and O'Sensei moved just before the triggers were pulled... sort of like basic stand off between two samurai.
