Re: Poll: Do you think people should receive ranking in aikido for reasons outside of their technical ability?

if someone has been working in the background , doing a lot of organising ,therefore giving up there own time when perhaps they could have been training, why shouldnt they be recognised for there input.a lot of people are never thought about who organise courses give up there time write and print out programmes licences take care of money issues but there again a rank grade or coloured belt means little it is the person that matters how he/she behaves as ssomeone has already said aikido doesnt stop when you walk off the mat it is how we live our everyday lives and applying those principles, well thats what i think any way , domo arigato.
