Now, what I'm currious about is if the people who object to Shioda Sensei's demonstrations, and Mori Sensei's demonstrations also object to Ueshiba Sensei's demonstrations. And if not, why not?? And if so, then why do we not hear those objections more often?
Fair questions. I think we do hear objections, but not as often as the idol-worshipping mush. That is, for the same reasons that Stevens sells more books than Pranin or Amdur.
I'm all for a level playing field and subjecting SHIHAN or Osensei to the same standards to which we hold ourselves. Shall we begin another thread?
