that was it! thank you so much! did you ever see anything more detailed covering this?
I've seen something more detailed but I do not have a copy of it that I can provide for anyone.
I have also trained with Shihans Fumiaki Shishida and Tadayuki Sato of the Waseda University Aikido Club in the principles of this approach - it is primarily based in maintaining Aikido ma ai at all times throughout the execution of technique. I can give you more information of my personal experiences with this via PM.
The core concepts here are keeping tegatana distance (ma ai) at all times during technique, execution of instantaneous kuzushi just before or at the point of being grasped (using mainly aiki sage and aiki age movements) and control of the attacker using tegatana, correct posture and generation of power from the body's core at distance so that one is never vulnerable to Judo's sweeping techniques and the Judoka is unable to get in close enough to grasp the Aikidoka's body or dogi to effect kuzushi.
As far as web resources go - if you google the term "rikaku taisei" you should get some good resources on the research behind this. There are also the DVDs by Sato Shihan that explain these theories (they are in Japanese however). You can check those out here - http://www.budovideos.com/shop/custo...me.php?cat=574
