Did Ueshiba ever test hiw sword skill? Takada apparently used his but not against another swordsman - the leg cutting incident. Even so Takada did study a particular sword school did he not.

Still smarting from being told by a young Aikidoka - that Ueshiba was Japan's greatest swordsman. That right after the same person telling me that Ueshiba was Japan's most religious man.
