Aikikai/Yoshinkan?

Has anyone trained in both styles? And if so could you tell me the differences,and/or similarities?

Also i have heard that Yoshinkan is more closely related to Daito Ryu, and i was wondering if that was true?

Thanks

The link provided in the other response is a good one, and I believe I have some comments in there.

Hmm. That depends I think on which version of Daito ryu you look at. I found a lot of similarities when attending the open seminars given by Kondo Sensei from the main line tradition. From what I know of Roppokai, under Okomoto Sensei, I would say no, though. So it really depends on what specific schools you are looking at. Yoshinkan tends to be more uniform than Aikikai, but still, there are differences between schools.

I would say that Yoshinkan is pretty directly related to "Aiki Budo" and the pre-war styles of aikido. Gozo Shioda, the founder, actually was given rank in Daito ryu originally, not aikido. Like most if not all of the instructors that came out of the early pre-war training days.

Best,
Ron
