IAF Gender Balance Working Group

IAF Gender Balance Working Group

Following the Takasaki declaration, the IAF Gender Balance Working Group has been making continuous effort to bring a better gender balance in Aikido. Our current target is to increase the number of female board members and high ranking teachers, who are absolutely minority in the world Aikido community at this stage.

Our working group consists of 26 delegates from all over the world, holding online meeting bimonthly, to exchange ideas and to raise awareness in gender balance in and out of her own country. We organise and support activities such as Gender Day, female instructor seminars and campaigns which sheds more light on female teachers as role model. These activities are entirely open to all the IAF members. Moreover, your engagement is highly appreciated.
