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 tld him to.
Ah. I been had. Because Tohei's books don't mention standing-post training, I assumed he didn't do it. That's one of his main sources of power, then, undoubtedly. I wondered how he developed so much just using the exercises in his books. Probably I allowed myself to be had about Ueshiba in the same way because it's not in the books or anecdotes by the uchideshi, but this possibility will be harder to pin down.
