KAMI : You know...You're right, Jun San. My mistake... Anyway, from what I heard there was a bomb : for the first time, 6 non-japanese were OFFICIALLY indicated as Shihan by the Aikikai : Tissier, Doran, Witt, Cottier, Nadeau and Lee (from Taiwan). No, nothing about SSS.

dm: What does "shihan" mean in real-world terms? (How does it change a person who could already call himself/herself "sensei"?

Who is SSS?

Thanks.
