Which makes Starbucks Aikikai (or a Virginia Slims/MacDonalds-sponsored seminar) make more sense? Or is that too much?
Deb, this sort of thing makes a lot of sense actually. I think, but could be very wrong, that Hombu is supported by, shall we say, private entities. I think the same thing also applies to the Yoshinkai as well but I could be wrong about both of those. Taking the next step doesn't seem all that illogical to me at all.
