However, it seems to me that Tohei had a virtual lifetime of experience in Aikido including being the Chief Instructor at Honbu. One of those guys with high rank earned over decades. So he had a amazingly powerful foundation upon which to build.
And despite that, he still felt that he had to go outside of aikido to find what he considered the keys to aikido. What does that tell you?
