Re: Standing Postures in Aikido?

In regard to the standings you're mentioning, this only makes things worser and worser. Can you get any idea about the source of those standings which Tohei was using? I.e., did they come via O-Sensei or somewhere else?
I have only listened to stories from the old days of Tohei Sensei's visits to Hawaii and the rest of the U.S. so I would be interested to. I recall stories of Shinichi Suzuki Sensei stand in postures for hours either trying to match Tohei Sensei's training regimen or because Tohei Sensei told him to. I would be interested to hear about that, I have only done a lot of holding standing postures in Tai Chi chuan practice.
