What's the Aikido World Federation?

Recently I've come across references to teachers who hold their ranks under the "Aikido World Federation (Hombu Dojo)." What is that?

I know about the Aikikai Foundation and the International Aikido Federation.

Re: What's the Aikido World Federation?

Just in case someone wants to resurrect this thread ten years from now, I've decided that the "Aikido World Federation (Hombu Dojo)" must be a mistaken reference to "Aikido World Headquarters," an English title of the Aikikai hombu dojo, probably from confusion with "International Aikido Federation."
