Protecting British Budo from the Discredited British Aikido Board. Read how the `British Aikido Board ` the UK governing body for (some) Aikido, use slander - defamation - against a senior ( now ex ) BAB founder member. Henry Ellis dared to question the crass conduct of the `BAB` chairman Toni Davis and Mr V Sumpter, along with the secretary Ms S Timms, and the then executive team. This controversy has been a prolonged effort to protect the true history and lineage of British Aikido from its inception in 1955 by Kenshiro Abbe Sensei. This controversy continues today ``simply because nothing has changed.`` - "" Imagine ```` you are a direct student of Kenshiro Abbe Sensei , you are standing in line to be presented with an award as a pioneer of British Aikido recognised as such by TK Chiba Sensei and the present Doshu M Ueshiba - you hear a sniffle and a shuffle behind you,- you look behind - and - behold - it is one of your own ex - students who now suddenly re- appears self graded and re-invented as a ````pioneer ```. Mr Poole was not on the event poster or on the event brochure, yet, the statue / award was already engraved and prepared with his inscription well in advance.- pause at 7min 14 secs. you could not make it up - The British Aikido Board did !!
