I think the interesting thing about the story is that he used techniques from ninjitsu to survive. Apparently he did a similar thing when his students asked him to demonstrate a technique from Ninjitsu. They all surrounded him, rushed him, he "disappeared" and was waving at them from the office! He also said that ninjitsu was the total opposite of Aikido. Maybe something he had learn't but he never taught?
