    Lol, I think he ended up with a decent record. But his fighting style was definitely not aikido based.

    Speaking of which...

    The articles on aikido and aikijujutsu are interesting but everything I see about daito ryu looks like this...

    Which seems like run of the mill JJJ silliness that doesn't square with accounts of early Ueshiba or his teacher.

    Are there any examples of daito ryu that look functional against something other than a crash test dummy?

    After years of involvement with right-wing extremists, ultranationalist military officers, and teaching combatives in military academies, living in a small farm keeping a low profile because SCAP policies probably had some effect on him.

    It's a little known fact that he was Irish on his mother's side...
