Re: Jiyushinkai

I see that Jiyushinkai has been added to the "Shodokan" section. We are not part of Shodokan... nor Tomiki Aikido. I was part of JAA, later known as Shodokan for some time. It is part of our history, but to be honest and clear, our method of training and syllabus is not and should not be called "Tomiki Aikido" or "Shodokan."

We train aikibudo... I have no idea what sort of category we belong in. I do like to be as clear as possible and feel a bit dishonest by continuing to be categorized as part of Shodokan/Tomiki Aikido

Best regards,
