Mmmm, I just jumped on here for the same reason as Sicillian Dragon, probably originating from the same source:) I don`t like to label anyone McDojo without good reason, I think these guys are pretty close. How can a Karate association offer recognised ranking in Aikido, well I know how they can, but you know what I mean? How about their Dan advancement, here`s the section from their FAQ
Question: Do I have to appear before a Certified Promotion Board in order to be considered for advancement as a Black Belt?
Normally YES...However the OKF has just recently introduced a New Testing Program that involves the submission of a quality video tape illustrating and containing the proficiency of the individual that desires to be considered for Rank Advancement. With the high cost of travel and uncertain employment schedules of most individuals, it is most often very difficult for an OKF registered Black Belt to travel to our headquarters for promotional reviews. Full details of this program are provided to all members upon written request.
** The OKF is not a "Diploma Mill" and considers itself as having very high standards for all those earning rank and being certified by the OKF. The OKF bases its Rank Advancement Policy on reasonable and rational guidelines, with no arbitrary barriers or unreasonable age or time restraints.

Has a very high pedigree but send a video along with your cheque and we`ll give you Shihan at 4th Dan, how McDojo is that not?
