If I remember correctly, Tatsuo Kimira writes in his book "Toumei na Chikara" that according to his teacher Yukiyoshi Sagawa (who trained with Sokaku Takeda at the time), Morihei Ueshiba was seen to cry in the corner of the dojo after receiving some techniques applied to him by Takeda...

Based upon my limited knowledge, I think I would have been much more terrified to receive techniques from Sokaku Takeda than Morihei Ueshiba O Sensei.

I think I remember another story about when Sokaku Takeda came to visit O Sensei once, that O Sensei tried to evade or hide from him. Makes one wonder...
