You trained under Mr. Harris?
Yes. Roy had just started his BJJ class at the time. He was working as a security guard, or maybe campus police at University of California San Diego, so the class was on campus. He had also just started learning Sambo from a UCSD graduate student, who was from Russia. They rolled one day and he got Roy with all kinds of leg locks, so they started exchanging information.

Roy did mention an Aikido guy who came to him for training. He wanted Roy to help him make his Aikido work against boxers, grapplers, etc. I don't remember if Roy mentioned his name.

One day he brought a couple of his BJJ training buddies with him to Judo class, and they threw everybody, even the sons of the head instructor.
The old days when BJJ practitioners had black belts in Judo, but off course hardly mentioned it.

Well, even O Sensei was a Judo student in his youth. Aside from remembering those who were explicitly both high ranked students of O Sensei and Kano Jigoro, few ever mention Judo and Aikido in the same breath.

Don't all Japanese youths study Judo at some point? I think it's like a PE requirement or something. (Not kidding.)

Well no - in Ueshiba's case his rich father hired a young judoka to teach him and a friend.

Budo training (Judo, Kendo...) became compulsory matters in the Japanese educational system during the 1930's until the end of WWII. Ueshiba trained Judo in 1911, in a private dojo built by his father.

Most high schools I have seen have a Judo, Karate, Kendo, or sumo club, or a mix thereof. A few have Aikido clubs. I would say every major university has one or two or more massive dedicated dojos (A Karate dojo, a Judo dojo, Kyudo etc. etc), plus a sumo ring etc. It's just the norm there. Every small town seems to have a medium to massive Budokan.

I'm talking TODAY :-)

Well, he is the soon of Morihiro Saito so he is probably the best representative of Iwama and his fathers way of teaching and therefore by many accounts the way of O'Sensei. What's his name now?
It was Hitohiro, now Hitohira.

I think it´s pretty clear that he (Hitohira) is his own and that´s a very good thing. He is obviously exploring aikido and budo as well as making changes as he goes along. His students are usually very enthusiastic about their practice so in most cases I think a group connected to Iwama Shin Shin Shurenkai is a good choice as any to test Iwama-style aikido. There are however other senior teachers that remain within the Aikikai both in Japan and the west, like Inagaki, Takayasu, Hendricks, Evenås, Andersson, Larson, de Quiros etc that had a strong connection to Morihiro Saito and provides high quality Iwama-style instruction.

The two I mentioned did wear their black belts to Judo class.

There was one guy in Judo class who wore a white belt but clearly demonstrated skills far above white belt level. The head instructor eventually found out he actually possessed a brown belt from training elsewhere. That student was reprimanded in front of class. Afterwards he attended wearing a brown belt.

Yes, i heard about many of them. I just thought because of the strictness in the way of instruction, that his father had, that he would be the best option. In that case any one of the above mentioned would be a good choice, while also having a connection to the Iwama Shin-Shin Aiki Shuren-kai.

Re: Complementary Aikido Styles

I think this is a good spirit and open mainded to search in all Aikido styles, because I think that all styles have something at least (if I do not say a lot of things) to teach us about Aikido, but you need to know (and according to my little experience) that all styles share the same basics, such as: triangle, cercle, square, hips movements...
