Irrespective, Peter, the thrust of Clark's article is not pertinent to my argument, but it does lend credence generally. Even if Ueshiba did indeed show and teach this stuff to the few selected disciples, the knowledge is still being generally withheld from most, but a select few. While the rest of us have to be content with vague descriptions like "distract him... hit here... somewhere in this general location".
Sorry, I disagree. You quoted Clark and so I checked his sources. His credence is specious. If he was not pertinent, why did you quote him?
