Our first CAF gasshuku weekend will be held on July 17 -18 in Northern Virginia. This event will be hosted by Potomac Aikikai in conjunction with our 6th Year Anniversary. This event is open to all practitioners of aikido regardless of rank, affiliation, or experience. It is our hope to provide everyone attending with a great training experience in the spirit of the Founder, Morihei Ueshiba.
Classes will be led by our own Clyde Takeguchi 7th dan (CAF Shihan Director), CAF Technical Committee members and CAF Chief Instructors.

I've never heard of the CAF.

Do they have an official website? I can't seem to find any mention of this federation outside of the potomac aikikai. Does anyone have any other information on this federation?

Hi Maggie,
no 'official' website yet. Should be up soon though. Some affiliate info here:

Is Clyde Takeguchi Shihan the President of this Fed?
Some one told me he was gonna do something in Canada. lol

Maybe your some one got mixed up with the CAF (Canadian Aikido Federation), which has been around a long time and is under the technical direction of Kawahara shihan. I see possible acronym confusion in the future.

Maybe that was it!
I didn't realize he was making his own association though. It'll be cool to see how it goes.

Headed by one of the world's premier Aikido Shihans, Takeguchi Shihan will be accompanied by dojo cho's worthy of respect and acclaim.

Thank you Sensei for the kind words.
It was a momentous weekend. We were very humbled by the cross section of over 80 aiki representatives who attended and supported this event. It was truly aiki in the flesh and spirit with Aviv Goldsmith Sensei providing the perfect setting for us, Greg O'Connor Sensei and members of his ACNJ in attendance as well as members from the midwest, northeast and southeastern parts of the US working on aikido together.
