Hi Jun,

A minor point re: the Aikido styles section of Aikiwiki - technically the BAB (British Aikido Board) is not a style, but a governing body representing UK Aikido organisations from all styles of Aikido. It is inaccurate to list it under 'Aikikai' as a style, because its members are from all the different styles. Can it be listed under the heading of a governing body rather than under a style?

I'd rather not make any changes without asking first!

I'm also wondering if the BAB is unique in this, or does anyone else in the world have an umbrella organisation that represents all Aikido styles in their country?

Likewise, The BAA is a tomiki organisation IIRC, I'll prob change it in the near future when I have some spare time

PS - I'm amazed at how many high ranking non-japanese are listed on the wiki, I didn't realise there were that many. It brings up an interesting point about how to deal with 'independent' dojos and teachers on the wiki, I'll enjoy watching how it works out.
