well.. correction to my last post... maybe "koryu gumdo" and "seitei iai" just ain't the same...
Koryu Gumdo (black belt form "Moo Sa Gumbup") by Grandmaster JP Wood, Chairman of the World Koryu Gumdo Association:
Funny, both my karate sensei on Okinawa started their rank history as hachidan. Hum, well, that was back when they had just adopted the rank system from Kodokan Judo and they were already masters in their own right :)
Then I amend my earlier statement. No navel-gazing, anime-watching ki hippie aikidoka LARPing in an entirely compliant American dojo has ever been killed in a training accident. I always assumed that the Japanese still did their aikido in a practical way. The hazing thing is a disappointment, though.

I think you need to read the thread so, you don't repeat what has already been discussed and nixed. This is a thread on his claims not diagnose a disorder over the internet.
