I just got word that the Aikido Association of Northern California Division I headed by William Witt sensei has now become the Takemusu Aikido Association. The news release I received reads, in part, "William Witt sensei, 7th dan, director of AANC Division I, announced that the division has gained a new name and shifted to a new affiliation with Morihei [sic] Saito sensei in Iwama and the Hombu Dojo in Tokyo." The release continues to say that the AANC itself has been dissolved and split into two organizations: the Takemusu Aikido Association (TAA) and the California Aikido Association (CAA) headed by Frank Doran sensei and Bob Nadeau sensei. For the complete release from the TAA, please visit this page.

KAMI : IMO, the release states clearly the aggressive nature of the separation and the dissolution of the AANC, immediately after the nomination by the Aikikai of its 3 leaders to the condition of Aikikai Shihan. It's a pity Aikido continues to be charged with politics and power struggles.:disgust:

More information about CAA organization
 
The home page for the California Aikido Association is http://www.ai-ki-do.org/ and Pat Hendricks is the third head instructor (in addition to Robert Nadeau and Frank Doran mentioned above).

KAMI : Very interesting, indeed...Pat Hendricks is one of the most famous and respected Iwama Ryu practitioners in the USA, together with Witt Sensei. But she has sided with Frank Doran and Robert Nadeau who do not belong to Iwama Ryu...
I'm sure there must be a simple explanation but I fail to see what it is...:cool:
Hoping for the best to all of them
