Re: Regarding James Smith


I don`t see "James" as having been kicked out for breaking any kind of rule. It seems clear to me that his instructor asked him to do a kind of training (apologize and give a real name.) Knowing what I know from reading various Jiyushinkai members` writings, I think that at least partly if not wholly, the special training was for James` own benefit. He refused, so of course, he can not be considered a part of the dojo. we should remember that it is not for something he did, that he was asked to leave, it was ofr something he didn`t.
