Haha was born in 1908. He started kendo at the age of 18 (1926), one year after the 'enlightenment incident.' Per Stan Pranin, he had some kind of a 'match' with Ueshiba in 1933.
My feeling is that the spiritual awakening in Ayabe and Haga's challenge (as described by Tamura) were two different unrelated events which, somehow, became one in the hagiographic process.
