Proving the point I was about to make. If you already have some idea what Ikeda Sensei is talking about, his explanation gives you something to work with. If you don't, I think it's likely to go sailing right over your head.
I totally get that. Hopefully, others are also getting interested in chasing down that basic "some idea what" and can add their input, help the discussion, etc.

Arguably, the primary role of someone in his position should be to teach the teachers anyway, who will then go back and teach their own students. The extent to which that is actually happening is a topic for another thread.

Right, I understand that's the model and a larger breakout discussion regarding its transmission is definitely merited. I'd be interested in how the folks within aikido would drive that discussion.
