Re: Aikido Frauds

One thing I'm noticing with some of the sites I am documenting is that some of the people developing their own styles of aikido have an aiki-jitsu or hapkido background. Just for the record, even though the kanji for hapkido is apparently the same, it does not qualify you to make up a style of aikido. Geez. These people are pathetic. I didn't mean to revive this but I was just surfing some of my "potential" fraud list and run across one of these. The guy goes from master status in Hapkido and now suddenly he's a grandmaster 10th dan in aikido. I guess it sells better.
