If it matters, he's gone into his own pocket more than once just in order to come out and play with us in Hawaii.
Well, it is Hawaii after all! Who wouldn't chip in a bit to go there
It's a shame that he was banned here though. Although I do agree that his approach to communicating with people online might sometimes be a bit...how shall I put this...rough...and could be viewed as offensive and opinionated in the extreme, from what I know of my own studies in Daito-ryu, I feel he knows what he is talking about. I would bet plenty of money on his ability. I'm sure, everyone here could learn a lot from his experience. Banning him was a MISTAKE that will only harm the Aikido community.
