As for the idea of some sort of independent accrediting organization, its first and perhaps impossible mission would be to define what is and is not aikido.
And its second and, unfortunately all too possible mission, would be to bury all the creativity and diversity of Aikido under a mountain of regulations and standards in order to make all Aikido "styles" as cookie cutter identical as possible. No thanks. We don't need to scrap the Aikikai in order to replace it with yet another useless bureaucracy.
