Dear Chris, Hopefully , why not ?The Tohei letter is not a bad letter.He simply states that a particular gent had a grudge against him.The letter is quite sad actually.The letter also implies that the second doshu remained passive and did nothing to remedy a situation in the USA
which contributed to the ill feeling between Tohei and the other Shihan. Cheers, Joe

Actually, I was referring to the Tada letter above...

Re: Tohei's resignation letter to the aikikai

Chris, the Tada letter is now available on AJ? I thought the last word was that Stan Pranin would not make it available.

No - I meant that I was referring to the Abe (misspoke when I said Tada) letter in the post that Joe quoted.

Best,

Re: Tohei's resignation letter to the aikikai

I just visited AJ and have been unable to find it Chris. I found references to Abe Tadashi Sensei, but couldn't find the letter. Any search hints?

Michael, If you are a paid member, log in and it takes you to the Members Home Page. Look at the section that says :TOP POSTS. The letter link is active and will open a PDF scan of the real letter.

It is the duty of the strong to protect the weak.

I think that two different posts in the same thread are getting confused.

I one post I replied to Wilson that yes, the Tohei letter has been released.

In another post Joe quoted a post I made about the (not yet released) Abe letter, and I responded to that.

Sorry for the confusion...

Best,

Chris

Re: Tohei's resignation letter to the aikikai

Yes, I was confused. I have the Tohei resignation letter and thought you were referring to the rebuttal that I've heard was written by Abe Tadashi Sensei. Thanks for clearing it up. Maybe Stan will release it one of these days.

Dear All,
I was referring to the Tohei Sensei resignation letter .I was however suggesting that the letter is no big deal.The content is simply Tohei Sensei expressing his thoughts about his work in the USA and the conflict between him and a well known Shihan. Sorry if I caused people to get blogs mixed up.I would also like to se a copy of Tadashi Abe letter.Cheers, Joe

Contains an interesting letter from some of the Hawaii folks who ended up following Tohei.

Best,

Chris
