Re: Where Did Ueshiba Morihei's Training Go?

[quote=Jason Casteel;251106]
3. Again, I can't say the either Takeda or Ueshiba felt that weapons were integral to what they were teaching. Nobody, in either DR or Aikido seems to have gotten any consistant weapons training from either Takeda or Ueshiba.......... (end Quote)

Morihiro saito sensei, Im quoting an interview with him as posted on AIki Journal, practiced weapons work with O`sensei nearly every morning for 20 + years, in Iwama.
Mitsuigi saotome sensei, Also studied weapons with the founder in Iwama.
I would say 20 years +, training practicaly every morning in fron of the Aiki shrine was pretty consistant weapons training.

It could equally be said that Ushiba was trying to free their minds.....
I was recently told by someone (this is a third party repeating the comments one of Morihei Ueshiba's uchideshi made on the subject to him) that the reason both Tohei and Hikitsuchi Sensei received 10th Dan was because they had "freed themselves from the confines of their own minds". Whatever that means.

.....Yet it is worth noting that it appears the one student who pursued the path of IP/aiki, Tohei, was recognized and given a "finished" diploma 10th dan.
I think it might be worth considering what Hikitsuchi and he had in common, it was obviously something O Sensei considered important, given what I said above.

Tohei can be seen on film doing demonstrations of standing on one leg and being pushed. But, did Tohei or his group "assume a one-legged stance and tell" anyone "to come at him"? Not being snide, but interested to know if anyone actually did this. I'd never heard about Tohei's group doing that.
I've seen that done
