Incidentally, K Chiba was the only deshi I know who returned home from the country he had been sent to before he was supposed to, and the reasons he gave to me had some relevance to the title of this thread. He felt that the Aikikai were losing theiir mission to keep aikido 'pure' and I think he meant something like how he learned the art from Morihei Ueshiba himself.
