Re: aikido politics - implications on training opportunities

Hi Peter,
Thanks for sharing so frankly. Although my experiences have been with various Ryuhu in Australia and abroad rather than Hombu it resonates well.

Hi All,
Perhaps OT and for another day or article (a few columns have touched on this), dialing forward a few years and well and truly into aikido's third and forth generation its possible to imagine a Pranin esq' aikido universe where there is a proliferation of aikido organisations (and groups/federations within organisations) that don't necessarily communicate. Here restrictive access to quality high level teaching outside ones school ensures that aiki suffers the eventual dilution and quality control of some of the other modern budo. Any thoughts?

best,
dan
