The "one point" as Tohei described it is often associated with the dantien, but I don't think this is a good 1:1 association.
Perhaps a digression, but I think an interesting one. I attended a seminar with Tohei's son last year, and he explained the one point as now being located much, much lower than tradition descriptions of the hara. He identified it as the area a few inches below the knot of a hakama.
