Re: Changing aikido organizations

The problem, as you've defined it, is that you can't spend significant time with Shihan B or his organization. That being the case, you're stuck with organization and Shihan A. There's nothing wrong with sticking with them and also going to study with Shihan B when you can. Just be aware that Org A is going to judge you by their standards. There's no need to feel awkward about taking rank from Org A either--they are still your parent organization and will still have a major influence on your aikido, willy-nilly.
