Re: Rank Certificate Issuance

A quick and incomplete list using your criterion, these organizations have some presence in the US. There are many more worldwide without any US dojos. This list is only Aikikai style dojos.

Aikido Kokikai International, headed by Shuji Maruyama Sensei

Aikido Yuishinkai, founded by Koretoshi Maruyama Sensei

Aiki Manseido , founded by Sunadomari Sensei

Aikido Kenkyukai, founded by Takeda Yoshinobu Shihan

Aikido Nippon Kan, founded by Homma Sensei

Yufukan Nishio Budo founded by Shoji Nishio Shihan

Tendokan, founded by Kenji Shimizu Shihan

Tenshinkai Aikido Federation, founded by Phong Sensei

Suenaka-ha Tetsugaku-ho, founded by Suenaka Sensei

Aikido Yuishinkai, founded by Maruyama Koretoshi Sensei

Kurita Juku Aiki, founded by Yutaka Kurita Shihan

Aikido Seikikai, founded by Minoru Kurita Sensei

Aikido Saku Dojos, founded by Endo Shihan

Aikido Schools of Ueshiba, founded by Saotome Shihan

Aikido Association of America , founded by Toyoda Shihan

Some other than Aikikai:

Ki Aikido Groups:

International Yoseikan Budo Federation, founded by Minoru Mochizuki Sensei

By the definition of being founded by an O Sensei student, none of the Tomiki, Iwama or Shioda groups in the US qualify.
