O'Sensei's Martial Art Training

In the interview posted at http://www.aikidofaq.com/interviews.html,
O'Sensei said that he studied many martial arts in search of true Budo.
It was after training with Takeda that his eyes were open to true Budo.

After training with Takeda when his eyes were opened to true Budo did O'Sensei stop training or learning other martial arts? Was Takeda the last martial art teacher he had?

Re: O'Sensei's Martial Art Training

Ueshiba definitely learned another art after meeting Takeda:

In 1937, he enrolled in Kashima Shinto-ryu.

I guess that depends a lot on how you are define "learned another art". If you can learn it from watching classes then I guess that DVD´s also should be a viable way.

OSensei surely was way ahead of his time, I wonder where he got the dvds?....

He wasn't able to watch DVDs, he was too busy practicing the new art of Nintendo.
