Jack Poole Biography Exposed
The British Aikido Board have given Henry Ellis a public apology for the their conduct in the Controversy Issues concerning Mr Jack Poole. Mr Poole has never apologised for his bizarre claims, in-fact he continues to promote these claims, along with his associates the KenShinKai and Jim Johnstone. This site will continue to advise the martial arts community and the general public of these fraudulent claims. We are also protecting the proud legacy left to us all by Kenshiro Abbe sensei . It is a sad indictment that some people are prepared to support these claims whilst some are prepared to ignore them, we will not.
|The Controversy Article||The Controversy article is now a piece of British Aikido History, it is a story of a fight for what is right against what was so very wrong, the total disregard of the British Aikido Board for the true history of British Aikido and the legacy of Kenshiro Abbe sensei. without the controversy issues being taken to a Sport England meeting and resolved, the true history of British Aikido would have been changed forever.|
