That was because they do not associate with any other dojos or instrctors and do not want their students training anywhere else. They teach that the Iwama style is the only true style and that anything else you learn is garbage.

The one thing they do say that I agree with, is that they got tired of all of the politics.
I like that very much... they don't associate with anyone else, think everybody else's Aikido is garbage, think that their style is the only REAL style, and they got tired of the politics? It's precisely this type of attitude which makes me tired, I must say.
