is it true that Saito Hitohiro sensei was replaced by the Hombu dojo? Attached a link
to Aikikai's web page.
Many ask me what exactly happened and how exactly thigs went. Was he asked to leave the lands of the dojo?
From Aikikai page:
The former Ibaraki Dojo is renamed "AIKIKAI FOUNDATION IBARAKI BRANCH DOJO"
Dojo Head Moriteru UESHIBA Doshu. (unchanged)
Acting Dojo Head Mr Hiroshi ISOYAMA, Chairman of the All Japan Aikido Federation
