I recall reading in one of the newsletters put out by Kimeda Sensei's dojo, that Kimeda Sensei refers to Kushida as (this is slightly paraphrased) "The greatest Grandmaster [he's] ever seen."

Kushida split with the Yoshinkan many years after arriving in North America.

Agreed. While in many ways Yoshokai was a "bad fit for me" and "didn't float my boat" etc, I've had the privilege of watching Kushida and his son perform. They are both phenomenal martial artists. Additionally, given how Yoshokai has spread and given the uniformity of how Yoshokai's yudansha perform their techniques as well as the uniform teaching style I can only assume that he is a very gifted administrator as well. If it is true that Kushida split because he was in it for the money and control (and I highly doubt that rumor) then all I can say is Kushida put the money and control to good use...FWIW, given how much I hated my time in Yoshokai it's odd that I'm praising Kushida so much.

Peace

I know this is an old thread still:

If you search Pranin's Aikido Journal and read interviews with Tohei & Inoue, you will know Kushida started with Inoue, the senior most student of Shioda. And Kushida was Gozo's uchi deshi for the longest time. So if "uchi_deshi"'s teacher taught Kushida, he must be Gozo Shioda himself. Not bad for a guy who is dead for 16 years!

I think Kushida broke off after they installed Gozo's son, who was much junior to Inoue & Kushida as Kancho (same thing happened with with Aikikai and Koichi Tohei).
