Last week presentations of Shihan titles were made to Henry Ellis and Derek Eastman Senseis at the Hut dojo.The late Haydn Foster Sensei was awarded 7th dan Aikikai rank posthumously.The awards were made by Chiba Sensei 8th Dan Shihan.
As most of you know each man was an early pioneer of Aikido in the U.K. I am sure I speak for everyone here when I say 'Well done, congrats' on these promotions.Cheers, Joe.
