Anyway I'm really sad that there has been another break in Aikido and I wish all of the Iwama Style students good luck in their independece.
Many "Iwama Style" students (in fact most of us in the US) have always been and continue to be in the Aikikai. Much of the European Iwama Style community has recently re-affiliated with the Aikikai. Around the world there are stylistic differences and organizational differences and attitudinal differences within the Aikido community -- the "Iwama Style" community is just one subset of the whole.
I agree with the writers on this Subject that more awase is better.
