Documented evidence of the crass conduct of the UK Governing Body for Aikido.
Henry Ellis ( ex- BAB founder member ) dared to question the devious conduct of the BAB - The BAB despite knowing that Henry Ellis did not even have a motoring offence against his good name and character - began to spread many slanderous rumours that Mr Ellis had been charged with "GBH" grievous bodily harm - a charge second only to murder, a charge that can carry a life prison sentence - This slander and defamation was exposed by a ex-senior BAB executive. See letter in video slide show above.
Detailing the BAB's attempted collusion with one Mr Jack Poole to change forever the true proud history and lineage of British Aikido, from its inception to the UK in 1955 by Kenshiro Abbe Sensei.
Henry Ellis was actually Mr Poole's first teacher, as one can clearly see from the large collection of photos and statements, this did not deter the BAB who place members and their money before principals and integrity - The BAB proudly paraded Mr Poole alongside his own teacher as a `Pioneer of British Aikido` - despite being fully aware of the truth.
""Imagine"" - you are a direct student of Kenshiro Abbe Sensei and recognised by the Doshu and TK Chiba as a true pioneer of British Aikido .
The BAB - UK Aikido governing body for Aikido invites you to receive an award in recognition of your achievements - As you wait to be presented to the Lord Mayor of Birmingham - you hear a shuffling sound - you look behind - standing there unannounced and totally unashamed is one of your old students, he is not included in the event posters - event programmes, yet, here he is in line to receive the same award as a pioneer - unbelievable.
You could not make this up - The BAB did.
