Greg is correct. The word used is 固体, read as こたい, as on p.51 of "Traditional Aikido" Vol. 5.
Actually, today I was in the Aikikai Hombu and spent several hours in the company of Hiroshi Isoyama, who is an IAF official. If H Saito's training is wrong then so is Isoyams Sensei's, for it came from the same source.
