Ueshiba & seishin kyoiku

Does anybody know of any references connecting Ueshiba with the concept of "seishin kyoiku" ( 精神教育 ), or rigorous training?

"Seishin kyoiku" could be translated as "spiritual education." This is the term that described the pre-war army's focus on developing perseverance, aggression, willpower, etc in its soldiers.

In martial arts, it might be connected with, for example, training to exhaustion and then training some more.

Does anyone know:

(1) Of quotations reflecting Ueshiba's opinion on seishin kyoiku?

(2) Whether seishin kyoiku-style training methods were employed in the Ueshiba dojo pre-war?

(3) Whether daito-ryu or the other jujutsu schools Ueshiba was connected with focused on seishin kyoiku style training?

Thanks.

Re: Ueshiba & seishin kyoiku

I found this in the forums...

A police superintendent wrote that "bujutsu" ought to be written "budo" and this soon occured. In the 30's, the term "dojo" became widespread; borrowed from Buddhism, it lent a patina of spirituality to the rough business of preparing an army of suicidal maniacs. Constabularies regularly policed dojo to enforce the requirement that they have KAMIDANA at the front of their practice area, and bowed to it before and after class.

Offers new perspective to the standard "harmony of the universe, self-perfection thing", doesn't it? Kano, founder of judo, must have rolled over in his grave and it's said that Ueshiba Morihei retired to the countryside to avoid being part of the prostitution of his art thus.
Anybody know details about the description of Ueshiba going to the countryside?
