Re: who'd you go back in time to train with?

Sokaku Takeda, then Morihei Ueshiba, then Gozo Shioda, Koichi Tohei, Terry Dobson, Don Dreager and time allowing Kisshomaru Ueshiba, Hikitsuchi, Osawa (Sr), Nishio, Yasuo Kobayashi (when he was younger) and a whole host of others too numerous to list.
And while it would be interesting to see my own sensei or senseis that I know well when they were younger, I think I would use time travel first to see those that I have missed the opportunity to know.
But, be prepared, as often the myth is more impressive than the person which is why I probably would not select Musashi, as I think I am content with his story as it is.
