If that's what the kendoka meant, why didn't they say they went to him to learn kokyu, kokyu-ryoku, or ki no nagare or some other more likely term?
They did use "some other more likely term." Kokyu (other than straightforwardly meaning breathing), kokyu-ryoku, and especially ki no nagare are not part of the normal jargon of kendo. Taisabaki is.
