Re: Aikikai Pioneers in Europe

Prof. Goldsbury,

thank you for a very informative reply, and for the explanation of the cultural meaning of "commissions" in Japanese usage. I learned something here.

Also, I am sorry if I used "Aikikai history" in a somewhat inaccurate way - since there seems to be so little written history of all this, I was referring to statements I encounter at times that aikido started with the arrival of the respective Aikikai Shihan present now. Which in some ways it even may have, I have no issue with that.

best wishes
