As I've noted the title Grandmaster originally came from chess.
Nicholas II, the Tsar of Russia, organized the 1914 tournament in St. Petersburg. He invited all the greatest players in the world. The top five players were given the title Grandmaster.
I guess that means he is not only good at aikido, but also an accomplished chess master.

It is not practice that makes perfect, it is correct practice that makes perfect.
