What do you mean by "Macedonian"? As far as the whole world is concerned the name of your country is FYROM. Macedonia is a geographical area of Greece that has been Greek for the past 4500 years and will be Greek for at least another 450000 years! It is akeen to me calling my Tv antenna the Aifel Tower or my town clock the Big Ben or the small statue in the town square the American Statue of Liberty.
Sometimes I am left speechless how people that train in Aikido principles refuse to learn the highest ideal, modesty.
Stelios, Crete, Greece!

As far as I know, this is a forum about Aikido, and NOT about politics ..... :rolleyes:

Mr. Papados,
I'm very sorry that you feel this way! I'm not history and sightseeing expert like you and I would not argue on this with you but I can tell you, Macedonian Aikido Association is registered organization by the laws of my country. Maybe, also you don't like and my personal name Ljupco, but what can I do? That is the name my grand grandfather gave it to me so it will be disrespectful if I even try to change it.
About modesty....NO......... but,
SHOSHIN would be a good start for me and you, my aikido friend...
I don't want to offend our highly respected host on this forum so this is my first and last reply on this subject.
