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.
