Just a suggestion... when you list the Teachers you have trained with on a forum, it's like your references on your resume. Folks are apt to check the references... You don't generally list the boss who fired you as a reference. This is a very small community...
My recommendation is for folks to go to the source...
Tom Read Sensei and Aikibojitsu
Aikibojutsu and the Structure of Natural Law
Tom Read Sensei's new book.
There is no reason to hide one's public training history. I won't be baited into debating private matters though.
I wish you the best in your training. I've read many of your posts here so I know your dedication to Aikido is sincere and exemplary.
