In an interview I read with Tohei some time back, he states the only thing he learned from O'Sensei was to relax. Is that what "he got"? I felt the comment was disparaging but perhaps I missed the point.
What a gift that Tohei learned to relax.....from Ueshiba.
Learning to relax is a major hurdle. Without relaxtion all you have is muscle and control.
