My experience is not so bad you know
as I'm not asking you to do anything I don't need to say too much...but I will say I'm acquainted with some of the highest level aikidoka anywhere....plus other things...and that's all.
Don't you realize that a lot of people posting here (whom you're dismissing) also have a lot of time in Japan and not only claim "acquaintance" with "some of the highest level aikidoka anywhere," but they will name them.
Are you being passive aggressive or do you call it coy?
You're being neither "gentlemanly" nor "Japanese," so give it a rest, would you?
