Re: non-Japanese cannot become shihan anymore?

This whole topic is a bit confusing for me. Haha. My sensei has the title of shihan and went to Japan to receive it. He is a student of Chiba Sensei. His name wasn't on the list above... so now I am confused as to what he would be considered. It really doesn't matter to me because he is still a great teacher and the title really doesn't mean that much to me. Just curious now.
The list was compiled in 2002, there have been a lot of shihans appointed since then.
