Re: Request for Civil and Respectful Conduct
IMHO, Verbal Aiki is also part of Aikido training. I noticed that some high-ranking Shihans I've met are very humble and respectful, even when they talk to beginners. Hiroshi Ikeda Shihan, as well as others, is a good example. They're those I respect and would like to study from. They deserve to be called "Shihan" (teacher and role model).
