To celebrate the JCCC Aikikai's 40th Anniversary, we will be hosting guests from Japan, Singapore, and the UK on Sept 1-2..
Our guest instructors: Shigeho Tanaka 9th Dan Pre-War Shihan, Philip Lee 6th Dan (Aikido Shinjukai Singapore), Frank Burlingham 5th Dan (Lowestoft UK Aikikai), and local instructors Osamu Obata Shihan 7th Dan, Paul Sunn 6th Dan..
The visiting teachers are also expected to bring their high ranking students.. The last time Tanaka Shihan visited, his party numbered approx 30 students and instructors from Senshu University Tokyo Aikido Club (young yudanshas in their physical prime)..
We are renting a neighbouring 6500 sq foot banquet hall with 210 tatami !!
This may be the last chance to see Tanaka Shihan in North America.. His travels have been very rare nowadays..
