So the solution to the mystery of the disappearing todome could be a matter of political de-martialization. Or it could be an issue of Osensei eschewing the kata of Daito ryu and instead focusing on showing off the principals.
Not much political de-martialization in 1935 Japan, if you'll recall. I think it's likely the second.

Evolution doesn't prove God doesn't exist, any more than hammers prove carpenters don't exist.
