Re: SAA Regional Seminar - Laredo, Texas, 8/25

It is also worth noting that even though one switches associations they do not automatically lose previously earned ranks. It is not uncommon to see someone listing something like: 4th dan aikikai, 3rd dan yoshinkan for example. There is always the concern of comparability between organizations and styles which is a challenging and difficult issue at the dan level.
