If you want to answer me personally please write to my private email address, it's in the profile.

PS Will you attend to the IAF training camp this summer in Sweden?

Best regards,

I have been aquainted with aikido in Sweden since the days of Mr T Ichimura. I am aware of a large divergance within Swedish aikido, but I understood from your post that there was a larger divergence more recently of skill within the same rank, not just, say, an Iwama-trained 3rd dan and a Hombu-trained 3rd dan, but a divergence in skill among 3rd dans of the same type. Or have I misunderstood you?

PS. Yes. I will be attending the IAF meeting in Sweden and I hope to do some training as well, so that I can look at the skill level for myself.

Best regards,
