A while ago there was a post about a guy named Michael Rosen, who started two of his own systems, and took the title "Osensei"

http://www.chidokai.org/

I posted something about it on Aikiweb, and the guys shows up recently to discuss it:

I don't know what to say about his reply. Honestly I could use people with more experiance in the matter's opinion. I don't see why someone would allow others to call them by a title they didn't ask for unless they wanted them to. If people started calling me "Soke" no matter who it was (Japanese girl or not) I'd kindly explain otherwise.

They are Aikido folk. All forms of conflict are brainwashed out of them at an early stage in their training. For example, if you have a husband and wife who do Aikido, and they can't agree on which type of bread to buy, then they just stop eating altogether. It's not worth hurting another person's feelings.

Avoid Aikiweb. It alternates between a farcical satire of martial arts, a public display of the sad state of Aikido today, and refuge of hopelessly self absorbed posters.

As for Chidokai, no clue, other than my normal skepticism of anyone who refers to themselves as O-Sensei, Master, Shihan, Soke, or whatever.

Same. I actually try to avoid Aikiweb anymore due to the political correctness. A guy posted a pic he drew called "Aikido Babe" and got jumped for being sexist. (stating that babe is sexist, and derogatory to women)

I can't force myself to read aikiweb anymore either, mainly because I can't use the work "****" like I do here, which happens to be one of my favorite words
