Didn't I already respond to that line of thought?
Tell me, does this thread have the topic "Help change my mind!" or "Help me find a dojo in Melbourne!" ? This is getting a little tiring....
Couldn't agree more.
I never claimed that Kancho Sensei (or anyone else for that matter) didn't have a ton of respect for O'Sensei.
It is however stated that your allegience is to O'Sensei first and foremost in regards to your Aikido training, and my point was that his beliefs/values are practised more in some styles than others.
So this is something you should be mindful of to avoid future frustration in your chosen dojo.
So once again, best of luck in finding a dojo that satisfies your needs.
