I lived in Nakano Ku for 2 years, in between Yamate Dori and Nakano Shinbashi eki.

A difficult problem is easily solved by asking yourself the question, "Just how would the Lone Ranger handle this?"

Hi Aikipeople!

I have a question about this,.. (I donn´t know much about Yakuza, never been a Yakuza Member ),... Well,...I heard about a High Rank Aikido Sensei / Shihan that before starting Aikido was a Yakuza Member, dont remember where or the name,... do you know who he is?,... I also heard that if you are Yakuza You can never get out of this unless you are death,..It is that true?,...

thanks!!

Speaking of which - have others living in Japan noticed that many people arrested for shady dealings or killed under mysterious circumstances are reported as ex-memebers of assorted gumi. You rarely hear of current members being done. Am I missing something?
