Hi, George,

Curious, this.

Have you talked with Saotome about his understanding of the term/title "SHIHAN"? That carving at the entrance to his house does say something like SHIHAN University, right? No one's graduated?! Or is it just assumed at some cut off rank (which would be...what?)


What is the actual wording (in the sense that in Japanese shihan gakkou does not mean a school for shihan)?

Best wishes,
