Here's a two-part article from Black Belt that discusses the current doshu's attitude toward seminars (and, I assume, demonstrations):

http://www.blackbeltmag.com/daily/tr...meaningpart-1/

http://www.blackbeltmag.com/daily/tr...eaning-part-2/
That was written based on the seminar out here in Honolulu in 2011 - I spent most of that weekend with Doshu and Waka Sensei translating and whatever...

Here's a shot with the man himself.

The article mentions that some of the Honolulu Police train in Aikido, which is true, but it doesn't mention that the dojo where they train has been on the outskirts for years because they're unhappy with the direction that the Ueshiba family has taken in the post-war era.

FWIW...

Best,

Chris
