Does it require a partner to do Misogi exercises? I don't think so. Does Fune Kogi Undo require a partner? I think you can develop kokyu with or without partners and having a partner has little to do with kokyu specifically.

Another good point. My take is that you need to both go solo and work with a partner to get to the bottom of it. Then, you don't really need a partner to 'keep' it, and if determined, to 'develop' it. That is what I have found. At least - it better be as since coming to Korea ten years ago most of my useful training has been in the mornings by myself. I have found I can now test kokyu stuff out by myself then go to class and make it work. Not perfect, but I feel I have a track ...
