Re: Standards of testing???

I know what your saying, but I think your fighting a losing battle here. There are different styles and different associations, yes they arose from personalities and politics, but thats life. And it has given us some wondrous diversity and options for studying many different 'ways'. If you dont like the standards where you train, then dont train there, look for a dojo/sensei that matches the criteria that you want in your aikido training. Dont try and impose your ideas of standardization on the rest of us

They're all screaming about the rock n roll, but I would say that it's getting old. - REFUSED.
