Those were before 1942.

Talk to Saito, or rather, any of the old time Iwama guys. Saotome's etiquette isn't even quite the same as the etiquette practiced at Aikikai Hombu. Not that I care about it, but some people seems to think that breaks the transmission.
Howso? What is different about Saotome Sensei's etiquette exactly?
