Question 2001 Kagami Biraki's Promotions

Where can I get the list of promotions at the last Kagami Biraki at Aikikai Hombu Dojo?
According to Jun San, Hayato Osawa and Seishiro Endo were promoted.
Anybody else? And where can I search for it?

KAMI : You know...You're right, Jun San. My mistake...
Anyway, from what I heard there was a bomb : for the first time, 6 non-japanese were OFFICIALLY indicated as Shihan by the Aikikai :
Tissier, Doran, Witt, Cottier, Nadeau and Lee (from Taiwan).
No, nothing about SSS...I wonder why...
Finally, the ice is broken!
Best regards and congratulations to the new american Shihan

dm: What does "shihan" mean in real-world terms? (How does it change a person who could already call himself/herself "sensei"?

Who is SSS?

Thanks.

Agreed! I think many thought this would never happen.

The new Doshu has been busy.

I believe Kami is referring to Steven Seagal Sensei. Correct me if I'm mistaken.

Question QUESTIONS...

KAMI : That question should be asked of the Aikikai since it was that organization who created the 3 teaching licenses (Fukushidoin, Shidoin and Shihan). By the way, Shihan is not exactly connected with the old meaning of that term (Exemplar Master)but, as I said, is just the name of one of 3 teaching licenses, created by the Aikikai. I'm sure they will answer you if you ask them in real-world terms.
Anyway, the question has little importance for non-aikikai practitioners. And the Yoshinkai, for instance, has long ago given the Shihan title for a non-japanese (Amos Parker Sensei).

KAMI : Steven Seagal Sensei, as Arianah correctly surmised.
