I'm not particularly concerned right now. My question (one of them anyway) is something more like, after Saotome sensei and Ikeda sensei die, who will be the shihan where the money for testing goes? Just people in the ASU who are 6th+ dan?
Sure, that's what happens in plenty of places, including where I am right now - not a Japanese shihan in sight...

Best,

Chris
