Re: Aikido and Sumo

Hi Rob,

I am very surprised that nobody has replied to this question. Maybe the sumotori are too busy training to talk about it.

Did the famous Tenryu (see Aikido Journal interview at ever produce any aikido students of his own? Did he steer any other sumotori into aikido? Did any aikido teachers other than O-Sensei instruct sumotori, or take up the study of sumo themselves?
