Hello Luis,

Thank you for your reply.

... Sekai Sokeshi, is the japanese meaning for Grand Master Of Lineage, or Master of Tradition. Hanshi, means Teacher of teachers, or the Master of Teacher. Names passed on to me by the many elders I've encountered on the Path... where i've spend my time since i've been in Orlando, Tenshinkai Aikido. Where i've built a great father to son realtionship with the master of the school, Jose Andrade Sensei.
Very well -- I'm not used to seeing those terms used as official aikido titles and/or ranks. May I ask the name of the person(s) who passed them to you?

A father-to-son relationship with Jose Andrade -- I'm not sure I get your meaning. Does this imply he is your teacher? Or, maybe, has he asked you to be his teacher?
