Clearly your instructors have lost touch with reality if they expect you to cow-tow for just posting your musings and what'not.I mean who even take's Steven Segal seriously anymore?
There is no Kyokushin school in Texas.However here is an Enshin website that I hope you find interesting.

This is what he wrote.
I have been off the forum for awhile due to work and generally did not post much when I was active. I started practicing Aikido in Dallas TX in 1990 as a member of the Fugakukai. Around 1992 I Joined the Jiyushinkai and have been a member in good standing ever since. I have been actively practicing in the only Jiyushinkai dojo in Dallas since 1996.
The reason I am posting this today is because we have recently found out that James Smith has been practicing with us in Dallas. "James" (I am not sure it would be appropriate for me to post his real name) did practice with us for around four months using his real name. The three instructors here did not know he was posting on the web until we received an email inquiring about him. On the mat "James" was very quiet only asking questions from time to time. Once we were aware of the situation we were able to identify who James Smith really was. We have talked with "James" and explained to him that his behavior was not appropriate and disrespectful to many people. "James" was a member of our dojo but not a member of Jiyushinkai. We asked "James" to write an apology and tell everyone who he really is but he has chosen not to. Due to his refusal to take responsibility for what he has done we have asked "James" to leave our dojo at this time. I would like to make it clear that "James" does not represent our dojo or Jiyushinkai in anyway.

If this sort of thing gets you kicked out of the dojo I don't think these were the kind of people you want to be learning from anyway.

Wow that pisses me off. Asshats like that (the fat guy in the picture) are responsible for making Aikido suck so much.

God, now I've got this mental image of three men in hakamas saying
"DID YOU HEAR?"
"THE INTERNET'S OUT TO GET US!"
Cartoon sweat droplets fly from their heads.
"YES, THE INTERNET!"
"SOMEONE SHOULD WRITE A LETTER OF APOLOGY TO THE INTERNET!"
And then a fast-motion, Benny Hill-inspired chase breaks out as the Aikido instructors haul ass from any semblance of dignity they may have had remaining.Captain's Log: Just a little update for all my TRUE and HONEST friends out there:
1) I am STRAIGHT! I am STRAIGHT! Get it through your thick skulls, numbskulls!
2) My name is not Ian Brandon Something.
3) Kacey is coming with me now. I have stolen her from the other Christian Weston Chandler.

Join the club... I got booted out of my karate dojo for posting here (among other things)
Best thing that ever hapened to me.

Yes, you should never question anyone. Just go about your business paying ungodly amounts of money yo anyone.
What a bunch of assholes.

a) they asked you to apologize to a website message board? For badmouthing Aikido and Seagal? WTF?
b) If you thought that Aikido was BS, why were you taking it? Or did you start, realized they were bull, and just didn't quit? (hey we all do it, not knockin ya)
