Though aikikai would have us believe they are ordained directly by God, I have searched my Bible and I went online for various translations and I find the aikikai nowhere among Jesus' topics of discussion!
That's the other thing of course, the Ueshiba family clearly believes that Aikido is a family art - and that tends to annoy those who have branched out into other organizations.

Personally, I think that it's grown way too large to be controlled/managed in the way that a family art is usually handled, but I'm sure that many people disagree

Best,

Chris
