I think Ueshiba Osensei probably had no problem demonstrating an art that he didn't want stolen with compliant uke but according to many of his direct students, that was not what he expected in regular training. That's not to say teachers like Takeda aren't entitled to do their own thing.

I haven't seen Takeda in regular training, only in seminars. But I heared he teaches basics as any other teacher.
People like him are often reduced to one aspect of their aikido.
