What does one do when confronted with new information; investigate or deny it?


Judging from the responses to Ken Zink's question I would assume the answer is that only a handful of people know about this training and even fewer teach it. Making it hard or impossible for people to believe what they see.
I think it's great that you are getting something from your training.

I investigated it years ago. After seeing and speaking with Barrish and many other people, including top-level sensei and other experts in the history of Japanese martial arts, i came to my own conclusions.

I'd agree, in a sense, that not everyone necessarily teaches the subtle aspects of Aikido. I frankly do, however, and can tell the difference.
