Re: Training at Hombu Dojo

The USAF passport he is referring to is the Yukyusha book issued in the United States Aikido Federation (Yamada Yoshimitsu Sensei is the head). It is not the Yudansha book issued by the Aikikai Hombu. It is our organizational equivalent for kyu ranks. It contains the students name, name of sensei, rank and dates of tests, and any seminars they may have attended.
