Re: Aikikai Website

As I am reading the thread, I believe the implied question is "why would Aikikai affiliated dojos not have a link on thier websites?" Rommel, please correct me if this is not your implied question.

I would put forth that perhaps for some dojos who practice aikikai style aikido they feel closer and have a more direct relationship to their national organization and the Sensei who leads it, and that the Aikikai is more of a grandparent relationship, more removed and less connected or personal. This proabably not the only explanation, but a possible one.
