Re: A dojo in my area!!!
If his ability satisfies your definition of his 7th degree blackbelt in samuri jujitsu then by all means continue to train there. However, the topic at hand is the source of his "aikido" rank. Please name a few "big names" who actually study aikido that respect his aikido.
Being a liar about aikido experience for "over 45 YEARS" is nothing to be proud of...
