The Aikido Hombu Dojo's Kagami-Biraki Ceremony will be live streamed for the first time. The online event will be on the 10th of January 2021, Sunday, starting at 2 P.M. (Tokyo Time).
The IAF Gender Balance Working Group would like to present video messages from role model female instructors in the world Aikido community. Under the pandemic, we all think hard how and what we can/have to do to keep Aikido alive. Through these videos, we would like to share the spirit, courage, ideas and experiences. The first video message is from Miyuki Kumazawa sensei from Japan. While training in the Hombu dojo, Kumazawa sensei is teaching in her own dojo in Shinagawa. In the video, she shows us some exercises which help us to keep training alone, under this pandemic situation. Visit the International Aikido Federation YouTube channel for more content! Thank you for watching and sharing our videos!
