Anyone ever seen Tohei's resignation letter to the aikikai? In it he says "After returning to Japan, I first put down Yoshinkan Aikido and worked hard to raise Aikido headquarters up in the world". What does he mean by "put down Yoshinkan".
Never seen it personally. Can you post a copy or a link?
I have no idea what the phrase means, it could be that he was approached by Shioda to join the Yoshinkan an offer he "put down" or declined. That is pure speculation on my part however.
