Re: Hiroshi Ikeda Becomes "Independent Teacher"

Ikeda Sensei brought immeasurable value to the ASU in terms of prestige by teaching seminars around the world, especially his bridge seminars where he creates relationships with other groups. I am not sure if this happened here in DC a lot but people moving to a new city trying to decide which dojo to join might pick the ASU dojo because off the affiliation with Ikeda Sensei. So in terms a business, there is one sense where the separation is a net negative for the ASU.
