Ken, I have to tell you something, Yoshinkai involves very rigorous training, but not to the point the author described. Keep in mind that the Riot Police Course is an intensive course with a very specific purpose. To teach these individuals proficiency in a very short period of time. I will admit that there are some dojos that will be tough on you, but that goes with the territory. If you a "Kreese" type teacher in the dojo, expect punishment. However, for the most part, Yoshinkai is just another form of aikido for all aikidoka to experience. It also happens to be my particular preference. ;o)

That which does not kill us can only make us stronger
