Odd question.

I am allowing myself to get trolled on youtube, and the guy is claiming that his name is on the nafudakake at hombu dojo. He certainly isn't telling me WHICH hombu dojo, but he claims to have trained with BAF's Kanetsuka sensei.

I mentioned to him that I am likely going to visit the Aikikai hombu dojo next summer and that I'd be happy to look him up, but I didn't think that Aikikai hombu actually has a nafudakake.

So, does it? I can imagine a name board for actual dojo members at the Aikikai, but really can't see maintaining a name on a board (as he called it) for each and every yudansha the Aikikai has registered. They'd need an entire floor just for that....
