I mentioned this on another thread, but the match in the film that you mentioned was in fact sanctioned by Morihei Ueshiba himself - which runs into some problems with a "strict prohibition".
Just thinking out loud: The film was made in 1958, maybe O Sensei choose to prohibit matches after this one because the amazing performance displayed by Tohei Sensei.
