AikiWeb Poll for the week of December 8, 2002:

Do you know anyone at an advanced level in aikido who has never taught aikido in any formal capacity?
All the time, but that's in Japan. The infrastructure overseas isn't built up that much yet in most places, so someone training for a while almost always gets pressed into teaching. Around here it's not unusual to run into folks who have trained 30 or 40 years but have never taught formally. The same parallel probably holds true for most Japanese arts here and abroad.

Best,

Chris
