I see your located in Miami Aikikai.
You see many people even today have doubted that there existed Aikido in Cuba, I have pictures with two of the representitieves, in a visit to Colombia, so i wonder if it's the same man i spoke to about the Arts along side of his Uchideshi..
Keep in Mind that the Aikikai, exist for a reason as badly as u want a new style to enter the Island you must understand that O'Sensei our Founder left the Aikikai and it's representitives in Japan, in charge of the teachings that are to be spread through out the world, though the teachings have modernized to accomadate the people of today, know it is Hombu Dojo whom you need to pay your respect to, and the AikiJinja where your prayer's belong.
As for Cuba in perticular I know they have been influenced by Yamada Sensei, My Self though memories fade, and from what is told to me a Teacher from Isreal was the one whom croosed that line to bring the Art into the heart of the Island.
Politics will be what they are, ignore them if you must. Know that reagrdless of the Art Style they all lead towards the same path of Enlightment, it is up to the individual to make the best out of what ever is accessible, knowledge is the beggining stage of Wisdom. If you dedicate to your path no matter how small of a hit of wisdom, the Laws of Nature state that, it'll Naturally reveal it Universal Wisdom.
Hence fourth, do the best with what you can, and when the new doors open make a change. Infact I see this troubles you greatly take it upon yourself to make a change for the best if there is a lack of Wisdom offered to the people, but be sure it's a lack of and not a wanting of the unknown, Like i said Aikikai is Hombu Dojo, there is no other Art left in charge by O'Sensei, other then those whom continued by his side all through out his life even in Iwama, at the AikiJinja.
Infact to make things a little clearer, make change by finding teachers to broden the minds of students, and the Teachers of the Aikikai in Cuba. Second, know that the Aikikai of today at the top is our Doshu Moriteru Uyeshiba, Grandson Of O'Sensei himself. See it as you never knew the blessings of the Aikikai that exist in Cuba with the little resorces available or lack their off.
Something is better then nothing, and a great smile came to me knowing that Cuba had accepted Aikido into it's Island by hearing it throught the words of their representiteves, as they told me the stories of the many miles people walked just to recieve a few hours of trainning, this is dedication that unfortionatly people of the States rarely know of, the modern live ajust laziness with accomidation, a terrible mix for any Artist of a desired Path.
I know this will not be easy to accept but it must be so for now do the best you can, there is no need to stress over the unavoidable simply blend with it and redirect it's flow on a possitive out come for the future of people and our Arts Representation there.
