GM Harper would be a really good choice. There are a lot of really good choices though. How do you know what you wouldn't get anywhere else? What would you get at GM Bunda's, GM Sedeno's, GM Sotelos, GM Forbach's, GM Dacascos or GM Kingi's? What would you get at Prof. Bono's, Prof. Powel's or Prof. Bishop's? You think you've seen so much that you know what it is you're looking at? Nothing wrong with training with a 5th degree. Not sure you'd be in a position to know why the individual in question wasn't promoted. You have someone in mind with your example? So you're not looking for an instructor then, but rather someone that will just let you do your own thing. If you think you know what it is that you need to "Truly" move on, then you've put yourself in the instructor spot. As to why you should have to adopt the curriculum of the art that you currently hold rank in, we've had this discussion before. Glad to hear that you tie your belt around your ass. Man they really don't teach you anything on the East Coast do they?
