I don't do TA, but lots of respect though.
KAMI : Dear Jim,
Have no fear...Peter is hot-tempered but an educated and nice guy from the little I have known of him.
And do not misunderstood me :
a) I have much respect for Kenji Tomiki Sensei, one of the greatest aikido masters;
b) I respect Tomiki Aikido and its practitioners; and
c) my questions are never intended to insult or bring demerit on Shodokan. It's just that there are some things I question, some things I don't like and some things I disagree. It's my hope, nonetheless, that Shodokan practitioners won't take that as a personal offense, which it isn't.
Good keiko
