Re: non-Japanese cannot become shihan anymore?
Dear Professor Goldsbury,
Thank you for that illuminating account of the history behind the International Regulations. You are right of course, I would have no idea of the internal machinations going on at Aikikai Hombu at the time that the Regulations were formulated.
I am looking forward to more of your answers to questions about the future of Aikikai Hombu and the organisations that are recognised / affiliated with the Aikikai.
All the best,
