Possibly an endless train of possibly Aikido related thought.

I talked to Sensei about my plans for a Saturday class and he's very enthusiastic about the whole thing and directed me to go and see a rather senior person about it. The only thing that, well it mostly perplexes me, is that he said that we can't enter competitions because we're traditionalists. I don't see what the problem is.

The only concern is that we're representing Aikido, the association and Hombu Dojo and so we mustn't do anything which brings either into disrepute which is something that's been central to my ideas. As I see things this is my project and I want things done in a way that's martial; more important than representing Aikido, the association and Hombu Dojo we're representing our dojo.

The public face will have to be one that inspires respect and there will be no room for posturing. posing and other testosterone fueled adolescent nonsense or endless chatter about things. Also if it all works out and we become successful then I think I'll actually have to be quite careful about who I train, I don't, after all, really want this to be a massive thing, I don't see this transforming Aikido as a whole; it's purpose is to draw in and retain younger students specifically for my dojo.
