Re: Ueshiba Sensei studied Chinese arts?

You asked for an example. Are you suggesting that because they look alike (jodo, in this case) that they must be directly influenced?
Why don't you go look at some of the Chinese short staff before you spout off, Matt? Show an interest in progress instead of protecting the status quo myths.
ps-I could care less about which art was influenced by what culture. You seem to be rather good at stirring things up though...perhaps there's some arrogance, real or perceived, on both ends of that "westerner" stick?
I realize that "stirring things up" may be a bit too martial for you, Matt, and I apologize.
