I have recently addressed a topic that I see as a fundamental and urgent problem in Shorinjikempo (and elsewhere) in an open letter to hombu.
It is my hope that an open discussion on this can help get us closer to solve the problem and would especially like to hear from those directly concerned about their experiences, their treatment within Shorinjikempo, their thoughts on the topic!

I will copy the letter into the next post and also attach it as PDF files for ease of spreading it around (it is in English and Japanese).
Translations into other languages might also be a good idea …
