No reason that wouldn't happen some day. Call any time, so to speak.

There is one problem as I see it with "reintroducing." Once the thread has been broken we run the danger of creating something new and beyond the character of the original. Maybe not a problem in aikido which can hardly be said to have anything like a unified "character" these days. I reference Toby's fine article on creativity and change in the budo.

edit - I've even heard some say that Ikeda sensei isn't "doing" aikido anymore, cited just as an example of militant orthodoxy in the midst of general hetrodoxy.
