The late Chiba Sensei was not only tremendous at suwariwaza he also was quite formidable in groundwork.His father in law;Sekiya Sensei \ was also very good a holddowns.He held me down with Kesa Gatame and despite my experience of Judo I could not budge him..
I believe both Chiba and Sekiya had years of Judo expereince before starting Aikido.
