    My point is that, J Kano was creating a physical education syllabus based on Japanese Budo arts, and he was open minded enough to allow teachers of other jujutsu school to help him formulate his education materials. M. Ueshiba was a teacher of a branch of Jujutsu, and indeed a man of good caliber, so it would not be surprising that J. Kano wanted to learn a thing or two from this man.
    It was a bit more then that.

    Kodokan Judo was created in part to improve the standing of Jujutsu in Japanese society, raising it up from its association with street thugs and antiquated ideas, while at the same time preserving what Kano considered the best of Budo.

    Once Kano had shown that his methods of teaching produced better fighters then the other Ryuha at the time he began the process of inviting as many traditional bujutsu instructors to the Kodokan to teach what they knew. When these teachers were good he would often send his better students to learn the complete Ryu if possible so they could integrate it into the Kodokan's archives.

    In the case of Ueshiba, Kano was impressed by his control of timing and balance wihtout unnecessary force, seeing in his Aiki methods the same notion that he was trying to teach as "Ju." He sent Tomiki to train with Ueshiba to both learn the entire curriculm of Daito-ryu as well as Ueshiba's attempt to modernize that school. While speculative he was probably hoping to influence Ueshiba to adopt the "Scientific" and "Modern" theoretical framework he had used to make Budo acceptable to Japanese polite society.

    The later part didn't really work out but Tomiki did bing back the Daito-ryu to the Kodokan as well as the formative version of Aikido and atempted to integrate it within a Kodokan framework. How sucessful that integration was is up for debate as Tomiki's branch of Aikido is seen as deeply heretical by many mainline Aikidoka and never really caught on strongly with most Judoka.

    It's too bad since for a long time Tomiki Aikido Randori was basically Judo with expanded joint locks and knifework. It can teach people pretty quickly how to execute wrist locks, spine/neck throws, etc. in an effective manner against resisting opponents familiar with and capable of countering the same methods. This is something almost entirely missing from the primary lines of Aikido and has helped contribute to that arts descent into Granola Hell.

    But don't believe me, go research this stuff yourself.

    1.- Suggestion: Do what Asia said.
    2.- Disclaimer: I have a real life outside the intherweb, so i don't read everything that's posted here.
    3.- Hint: "I think that there must be a method of randori and shiai that includes the atemi-waza, provided that we devise it gradually and only after thorough investigation. That system, however, is not as easy as the ones in which the relative merits are decided by throwing (nage) or restraining (osae) an opponent." (Prof. Jigoro Kano, 1926, quoted by Tomiki Kenji)
    5.- Rant: Naginata-jitsu is for ladies.
    6.- FIY: Draeger, Judoinfo and Aikido Journal are your friends.

    Am I included in that? I even said my information came from a (likely) biased source. But it was all I had.

    And I remembered what I had asked my freinds Aikido teacher: It was about Seagal, I thought he was Judo at the time, and we ended up having a brief discussion of Judo as opposed to Aikido.
