Also, Stuart, I don't think that is fair. Yes Kancho is where we look to in our teachings, but his Aikido came from O'Sensei, and O'Sensei's photo hangs in our dojo.
I've trained at a couple of Yoshinkan dojo and been to a few seminars in the last 7 years, and rarely do I hear about O'Sensei. Kancho Sensei, on the other hand, I hear a fair bit about.
It just seems that there is a whole lot posted here about "O'Sensei this, hakama that" when there should possilby be a little more "Just get in there and train. See how you like the place and go from there."
