At the same All-Japan demonstration there was a large demonstration given by the Aikikai Hombu Dojo, where he is doing his training. In my opinion, it would have been more appropriate for him to be part of that demonstration.
On the other hand, is he by any chance a member of the JSDF or any reserve component? If not, I see your point; if so -- not so much.
Thanks for the clarification, and for your continued valuable efforts to pull keep the shoji open on the otherwise often obscure personal aspects of this history.
I do not get the sense from this remove that there is some burgeoning "Shin-Sakurakai" out there. Your perspective may lead to a different conclusion. Some sort of generational shift going on ?
