The Aikido Schools of Ueshiba (ASU) has announced that Hiroshi Ikeda (7th dan, Boulder Aikikai) will be recognized as an "independent instructor" by their organization.
From the announcement
: "Some ties can never be broken nor would we ever want them to be. Ikeda Sensei is an important part of our extended family, always welcomed by Saotome Sensei and ASU dojos, but as an independent instructor Ikeda Sensei will no longer have a direct affiliation with ASU or the responsibility for conducting ASU yudansha examinations."
