Re: Aikido Frauds
John and Dave,
I believe you are wanting to accomplish something along the lines of the WHO (world health organization). The "WHO" is an organization and website that one interested in medical school can refer to for a list of ligitimate and fradulant medical schools around the world. This sort of thing would be a major udertaking but doable.
Personally, I think it is a great idea. Good ideas! I have seen people "bastardize" the art as well and nothing sickens me more regarding the preservation of lineage and quality. Now that I have been trained uneder a major organization, I can easily detect a independant and a fraud. The quality, methodology, ideology, etc..is simply.....unfound.
Organizations are in place for a good reason. Most independants despise what a organization stands for. It is well worth the effort and the journey will be fruitful if the path of becoming afiliated with a respectable organization is sought. There are merely my opinions and everyone maynot share my thought.
