Yet as a counterpart, there are also a couple of shihan around that utterly refuse payment because they dont consider payment to be what aikido is about.

Having these shihan come to your dojo is somehow more difficult than getting one of the others because the will only come when they are welcome, treated well and find that there are people that want to learn what they have learned already.
