Re: Standards of testing???
yes yes very politically correct, BUT as we all study AIKIDO, the art of peace and harmony and ultimate unity with all of creation, founded by one man Osensei, how can we reconcile having no unity within our community especially with regard to knowledge of and ability in the same martial art? does this not devalue all aikido and aikidoka... if aikido is anything anybody interprets it be, then how can that be Osensei's Aikido?
