Re: non-Japanese cannot become shihan anymore?

Am I right in thinking that the conclusion of this thread is that non-Japanese can in fact become shihan (supported by the recent promotions of Wagnar Bull Sensei etc), but that there are different classes of shihan which are limited by nationality? If so, could we have more details on that alleged limitation? For example, is this just a common opinion or is it official policy?


Hey Carl,
from Prof. Goldsbury's post I would say itseems like it is policy.
I am thinking he would probably know.
