What intrigues me is, why didn't he ask Ueshiba what he was doing, or actively pursue this training? It obviously made an impression on him.
This reminded me of this quote from Seiichi Sugano (talking about asking O-Sensei questions):

"In most cases, unfortunately, the relationship of student to master is one direction; there are no questions and answers or anything like that. It's sort of a pity, we would have had a better understanding if we did that, but there was no such way, so we had to just presume what he wanted. "
